History

Probably build for Lorne fishery which was opened up about 1935. With no permanent anchorage boats were smaller generally 20 22 feet so they could be lifted onto the pier in bad weather. Clinker boats were favoured by some as they tended to open up less when dry. Victoria was subsequently taken to the Gippsland lakes as a recreational boat. Restored by Peter and Sally Hannah in 1988 replacing the case, rig, flooring, coamings and lining boards. Owned by Richard Ingersole 1992- 2001.
