Now we often see more expensive, more beautiful boats than our own. Given enough money we could have one. But there a few unique boats that have special character that money can't buy, and this year the best we saw of these was the converted lifeboat Tamaroa.
Not an RLNI type lifeboat but one which hung on davits on the deck of its parent ship. The SS Tamaroa.
This little boat was so cute. All mahogany and brass inside and straight out of captain Pugwash. The old gentleman who owned it was just right too. Full of character and with a cheery disposition.
