FELISA >> WHANGATUPERE
The 32’ launch Whangatupere started life named Felisa, designed for Stan Blonde by Gerry Lane and built by Phil Barton in St. Mary’s Bay, Auckland – and launched in 1949.
As Fiesta she has made several appearance on WW, the 2015 story has more details and photos – links below.
Now thanks to woody Eric Moore sending in the above we get to see recent photos of the launch, now renamed Whangatupere.
I love the small steadying sail – very salty 🙂 WW Jan 2015 https://waitematawoodys.com/2015/01/22/felisa/
