|Location||Oyster Cove Marina Kettering TAS|
|Historic one hundred year old Huon Pine fishing vessel fully restored. |
This vessel is an important part of Tasmanian heritage. Parappa was built by E. A. Jack in Launceston in 1915 and constructed with huon pine planks on lightweight hardwood frames. Originally built as a cray, line and small net fishing vessel and configured as a gaff-rigged yawl, she retired from fishing in 2004. Plenty of modifications over the years with engine upgrades and wheelhouse additions. History for sale!
