Here are some photos of the restoration of a launch originally built in 1932 and lengthened 6’ early in its life to now make it 38’.
Powered by a Commer TS3 , 3 cylinder opposed 6 piston supercharged two stroke. Very unique sounding engines.
The hull has been Reribbed,splined and fibreglassed over.
The deck and cabin are all new to a design by the yard owner increasing head room and natural light.
I have been working on the aft dodger and main cabin. We are now setting up the sliding doors.
