Amazing Restoration of 1912 Classic Lake Boat – Lion

Amazing Restoration of 1912 Classic Lake Boat – Lion

How did I miss this story on fb from a year ago – back in August 2020 on WW we covered the amazing restoration of the 38’ launch built in 1912 by James McPherson in Dunedin for Hugh McKenzie of Lake Wakatipu (thank you HDK for the intel)

How today thanks to a fb post by the company that restored her – the Repair My Boat Yard (formerly Southern Classic Boats) in Invercargill, South Island, we get to see Lion, back on Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown.

Hats off to everyone that was involved in the project – she is up there with Rawhiti in terms of attention to detail and workmanship.
