Jack Brooke Mystery Launch
Todays woody is only a mystery because the seller didn’t disclose the vessels name 😦
What we know is she is 36’ in length, with a 10’ beam. Built in kauri utilising carvel construction and launched in 1962.
Powered by twin Ford 65hp Diesel engines, cruises comfortably at 8>9 knots.
Anyone able to tell us more about the boat – name, builder, history etc 🙂
WOODYS STILLWATER / WATERFRONT PICNIC – NEW DATE – APRIL 15TH
Steve Hansen owned this launch at one stage,twin Fordsons with dry stack exhausts she is noisy
I have no idea what design she is but it is nice to see that she is looking well loved!
I am pretty sure that she is not Dads design. I have looked through his drawings,
nothing resembling this boat

I would also question whether she is a Brooke design, the hard chine, straight line stem and slight tumblehome at the stern do not match other Brooke designs of that era. As for the cabin coamings….
#Thanks Alan- can only go in what the owner says, but as we all know that isn’t always correct. Alan H 😄
She lived at schoolhouse bay for some years then Trev the prop doctor had her in Milford Creek, Brooke ??
