History

Edna was built in Rhyll, Phillip Island, by local fisherman Doug Walton in John Jannson's shed and supervised by Ken Lacco. The lines were taken from the Couta boat "Victory" which was built in the mid 30's. She spent some time at the Gippsland Lakes, and then was used for fishing charters off the Mornington pier. Edna had a complete restoration and was relaunched in 1992
