This lump 'o lard spotted in Cairns on the outside of the marina wall.
if anyone is in Cairns, or gets to see it in port its well worth a nice 30 minutes having a look.
From one who hates anything made from trees, particularly if it needs beetle shells painted on, I can see how the varnish jocks would go goggle eyed.
Web site form its New Zealand service has some nice photos but doesn't do it justice. I can't find a better site for photos.
No, I couldn't imagine either. But I am glad someone is rich enough to and has the will to do it. I am not so flash on museum pieces sitting in some dry, air-conditioned hall, but this is living history and so beautifully done. But its not history of a working vessel, this was never a working boat its always been a rich mans passion. It has always been a dalliance and I'm glad someone is keeping it that way
