Stunning restoration of a classic boat. The boat`s history would be interesting. There are a number of strongly built old timber boats retired to pleasure cruisers seen on the Harbor, originally used as small ferries to transfer workers to/from naval maintenance places, like Cockatoo Island Sydney. They are part of maritime history, some keep their original names.
Halvorsen went through a range of partnerships, apart from Kong & Halvorsen. I was aware of Halvorsen Morson and Garland, responsible for the HMG cruisers, either 41 or 43 ft from memory, popular for game fishing.
