Phyllis M Goes Topless

Phyllis M Goes Topless
Back in June 2016, I posted a photo of the launch Phyllis M with rather a large addition to her dog-house, photo below, at the time it created interesting chat re the +/-’s of the addition. Link below https://waitematawoodys.com/2016/06/25/phyllis-m/


Woody Angus Rogers on his summer cruise aboard Centaurus, snapped the above photos of her in Man O War Bay, Waiheke Island. As you can see she is now minus the addition – if the owner contacts me, I’ll drop a WW t-shirt in the post as a thank you 🙂 waitematawoodys@gmail.com


In the previous WW story Harold Kidd advised that Phyllis M was built by Fred Mann at John Street, Ponsonby in December 1919 for himself. After Fred died in 1945 she was sold to Clive Power who renamed her Wainunu. I understand many years later Keith Munro, changed her name back to as launched.


In the second photo below, Angus captured a stunning sunset at MoW – shot with an iPhone 😉
