Mystery Whangaroa Launch 1930’s

Mystery Whangaroa Launch 1930’s

Todays woody is a big ask to identify – the caption is captioned ‘1930’s Whangaroa’ but the vessel is unnamed.Its mooching around a large school of Kahawai so no doubt is trolling a lure.

The photo comes to us from the British Museum via Lew Redwood fb and the photographer is probably J.M. Booth.

Are we able to put a name to the launch?

  1. I can’t name the launch but I’m sure there are 2 people in a dinghy a few boat lengths ahead. There is a small swell obscuring the dinghy. Perfect day for a fish. Birds look content after a big feed.
