Margaret S

P1110259

Margaret S was built as MARNE around 1918-9 by Collings & Bell for J. Goodwill who had owned Lizard before. She had a Fay & Bowen Reliable 40 marine engine for many years during her ownership by W J Parker who installed it in 1923. Guy Tattersfield owned her in 1932 but she appears to have had her name changed to Margaret S when bought by panelbeater Alex Stewart of Prospect Tce Mt Eden around 1938. The Johnson family bought her in 1967 and she still had the Fay & Bowen then. They must have been good engines. Coquette had one installed at the same time as Marne/Margaret S.
Ken Ricketts took the old photo in Schoolhouse Bay Kawau Island Christmas 1948 when owned by Alec Stewart
Recently she sank at her motoring in Bayswater & was resuscitated by her owner – new photo by Alan Houghton
