Nathan commented that whilst we see the exteriors of a lot of classic woodys, it is rare to see an interior from their heyday.

  2. Imagine how noisy cruising would have been with that engine sitting in the open!

    Some of the smartest looking woodys have similar set up these days – Wirihana and My Girl. Alan H

  3. Please can anyone advise the engine in her in those early photos? I think perhaps it may be a Stearns or big Kermath, but not really confident of it. Am very curious.
