LATEX (Winsome II)
The above photos of the xxx launch – Latex, now named Winsome II, great details and photos in the two previous WW stories at the links below – todays photos and comments come to us from the Maritime Museum via Nathan Herbert. https://waitematawoodys.com/2013/05/18/winsome-ii/
Nathan commented that whilst we see the exteriors of a lot of classic woodys, it is rare to see an interior from their heyday.
Have ferreted around & found an image of her original engine — The Sterns 100hp — KEN R

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
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.
