History

Built in 1949 for Ferrier Bros., professional fishermen in Queenscliff.

Caporns made 2 such boats, one for Jack and one for his brother, Lewis.

Jack sold it in 1951/2 to a Geelong chemist, Davis. It was purchased by Jeffreys family in 1991 and brought to Metung, on the Gippsland Lakes. The Howe family purchased it in 2003 and now moor it in Newlands Arm, near Paynesville.

Considerable restoration has been carried out and it is sailed as gaff rig.
