Looks like a fine old very soft chine wood boat.
Whose navy is she from?

Hi using propspeed on the prop
the boat was built by GMH in Melbourne not sure of its early history but it was used as a light tug boat in port phillip bay and then by Gippsland ports and harbours until it was restored and turned into a cruiser by a shipwright we have owned it for a few months

YES ..
That's what I like. A good old sedan nice and low w great visibility everywhere.

I remember the old boats w the big wood shoe and vertical aft shaft strut. I wouldn't't be surprised if lots of vibration gets lost in that big wood shoe.

Unlike many trawlers your prop has plenty of pitch.

Glad you're onboard.
