LADY JOYCE – c.1963
The photos above of the launch – Lady Joyce, currently named Lady Jane come to us from Robert Philips and were taken about 1963, when Len and Jean Perry owned her before Len had Aquarius built for him by Owen Woolly.
The first photo shows Jean struggling to haul the anchor in leaving Mansion House Bay while Len calmly powers off. A practice you still see today if anchored in a bay near Mark Edmond’s launch – Monterey 🙂
The other two photos are with Lady Joyce anchored with Len and Jean in the cockpit and third is taken at the same time with their daughter Dale Perry diving off for a swim with Arthur Burke’s Yasawa in the background.
Link below to a previous WW story on the launch. We still do not know the designer / builder – any new thoughts? https://waitematawoodys.com/2015/12/08/lady-joyce-2
