Milford Sound – Mystery Boat
The above photo is rather stunning, and comes to us from Lew Redwood’s fb. Its date c.1940’s – and woodys is all we know.Hopefully we can ID what appears to be a commercial boat, given that she is boarding passengers attired for tramping.The poster below were used to promote the area in the 1940’s.
Seeing we didn’t have a winner to the WW t-shirt quiz last week, the most accurate (you’ll need to explain e.g. it could be XXXXXXX that was contracted to the NZ Tourist and Health Resorts Dept etc) answer wins a WW t-shirt – entries via email only to – email@example.com
I believe the launch is Ratanui.

Looks a bit like the “Miss Mitre”/”Mitre Peak” (can’t remember which is correct) ex “Miss Picton”, though I think it may be too early for her.
