Mystery Waikato Launch (Lady Joyce > Lady Jane)
The above photo comes to us ex Jon Morey via Maurice Sharp’s fb. The truck has ‘Roost – Mercer’ on the cab so I’m assuming its a Waikato boat, but could be very wrong.
She does look very familiar, I’m sure Nathan Herbert will be able to ID her.
INPUT ex John Bullivant – boat is ‘Lady Joyce’, built by Willy Oliver on his farm at Pukekawa and launched in the Waikato in the late 40s. Pic is apparently around 1949. Truck belonged to Ceaser Roose (Roose Ind Mercer) and was apparently one of two bought back from Pear Harbour. (info and photo from the Road Transport & Contracting archives Facebook page)
INPUT (+. photos below) ex Ken Ricketts – later renamed Lady Jane
WW T-SHIRTS – BEAT THE PRICE RISE
The price of the WW t-shirts has stayed the same for many years – sadly that is about to end – the buy price has been jumping up for the last 2 years. Sure I could source cheaper garments, but that is not what we are about – only source top line, 100% cotton.
So woodys I have the following existing stock – so be quick, first in first served limited sizes, refer below. Note: going forward will most likely only stock large and XL sizes
SMALL s/s – 2 only black
LARGE s/s – 4 only black + 9 only slate grey
XL long sleeve – 5 only black – light weight, organic cotton
XL s/s – 3 only black
2XL s/s – 4 only black
3XL s/s – 3 only black
PRICE $34.95 (INCL GST) + $5 P&P
ORDERING: Because of the small numbers I’ll keep it simple – just drop me an email at email@example.com with your size/s and quantity and I’ll get back to you and confirm if there is still stock.
