The maiden journey from Stanley to Port Sorell.
My brother spent years and a lot of effort working to restore the Maleesh Maggie. When he finally got it seaworthy the engine died, but that didnt stop him, he just worked on it himself. Finally after all those years it was ready for the ocean. He had it tied to the wharf beside another small boat and this boat sank one night taking the Maleesh Maggie with it!

The boat closest to the wharf is Maggie!

I have a Compact Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3. I am teaching myself to put into a photo what I see and what I have in my head about how I want it to appear. Does that make sense?

    A nice photograph but a sad tale. There’s a saying ’ Boating is like standing under a colds shower ripping up $10 notes. ’
  • Yes I can understand that!
