Unidentified Launch Aground in Wellington
The above photo appeared recently on Lew Redwood’s fb page. Its dated 26th January 1960 and the location is the Pukerua Rocks.
Can anyone ID the launch and how she came to be there and she was saved, and if so where she is today?
A Peek Into The Future
I wonder one day if this ‘Jet Capsule Royal Version 001 Motorboat’ below will one day be considerably classic.
Targeting the super-yacht tender market, they are 26’ long, can carry up to 9 passengers, and while the exterior is carbon fibre, the interior is teak trimmed.
Lots of propulsion options starting with twin Torpedo electric engines (good for 12 knots) and topping out at 62 knots via a Roll Royce jet drive.
