MYSTERY LAUNCH OFF DEVONPORT YACHT CLUB – Raumati II > Moeraki
Todays mystery launch photo comes to us via Mitchell Hutchings fb from the Parsonson Family collection.
There appears to be a working-bee underway at the Devonport Yacht Club on what must be the western slipway.
The Mason Clipper in the photo must help date the photo.

I am almost certain that the launch in Mondays report moored off the Devonport Yacht Club was Happy Wanderer owned by John Senior. The working bee was replacing a rail on the Western slipway or cementing an existing one back after a storm. The date would be the 1960s.
