Mason Clipper – Alibi

Mason Clipper – Alibi

Just prior to Christmas the owners of Alibi, a rather elegant Mason Clipper, quietly slipped her into Greg Lees shed at Sandspit. I understand that she’s in for a minimum of 3 months for a ‘makeover’ – we have seen some stunning makeovers from the shed in recent times. – Trinidad, Mahanui, Arohanui – so we look forward to following with interest – nudge nudge Greg Lees, photos please 🙂

You will note the she still has her original engines twin straight 6 Chrysler Mitsubishis.

  1. The second Clipper 42 was/is named Crescendo, Mark McLaughlin has also seen her in Picton. She had a GRP hull vs Alibi’s cedar core.
