Mystery Bridgedecker – LADY ELLISON
No name on this old girl but her tme listing (thanks Ian McDonald) tells us she was built by Sam Ford in 1950, measures 36’ x 9’10” x 2’9”.
Built of kauri and powered by a Ford D360 diesel engine, that gets her along at 10 knots max. Other than calling Nelson home, that is about all we know about her. Can anyone put a name to her and tell us about her past?
UPDATE: SHE HAS BEEN ID’ed AS LADY ELLISON https://waitematawoodys.com/2020/03/06/lady-ellison-3/
HELP WANTED – ANYONE KNOW THE YACHT – KITENUI
The story goes that she was designed by Colin Wild and built by John Salthouse. Can anyone tells us more details about this yacht.
