ANNABELLA DN 87
Todays woody is the trawler Annabella and the photo comes to us from the Carey’s Bay Boat Builders via Lew Redwoods fb.
The photo was captioned – ‘Beautiful trawler Annabella afloat at the builders sheds prior to being rigged with masts and sails in 1931. Otago’. In my eyes beautiful is an understatement 🙂
Can anyone enlighten us on what became of Annabella, hopefully still afloat.
UPDATE and photos below ex Cameron Pollard – Sadly Annabella broached on the Kawhia Bar during the 1970s and sunk. Russell Ward has also advised the year was 1977 and one crew member was lost.
Small coloured photo looks like wharves at New Plymouth.
What a shame, lovely lines
Yep she was a beaut. Alas she was overwhelmed by a sea off Kawhia in 1977 one crewman lost. Anyone know what machinery she was fitted with when launched?
