History

Restored by owner and professional help over ten slow years after being recovered from under corrigated iron in Phillip island. Joe Pompei reckons she was built in Paynesville and I know she was moored in the Genoa river when she was sunk in a flood early in 1960s. Original engine was Stuart Turner twin, which is the only way I can determine her age.
