Bob Roberts And The SB Cambria

An absolutely delightful film of a time, sadly, passed.

Another Logan Masterpiece Saved From The Scrapheap

After four years out of the water "Ethel" is finally back in her natural element waiting to be rigged before spreading her wings again.

A fantastic effort by Keith Munro and Kevin Ebbitt.....well done guys she is a credit to you both.

Originally built in 1896 by Logan Brothers for Mr H Dawson to serve as a supply ship to service Great Mercury Island.

She also had several seasons racing and was also used as a fishing boat from 1914.

Now returned to her former glory I look forward to seeing her gracing the Auckland waterfront under a cloud of sails.
