The Register of Australian and New Zealand Ships and Boats

LATURA (1924)

Lew and Lizzie Garnham are looking for further information on the history of their handsome motor launch Latura. They lovingly restored the launch between 1998 and 2003.

The Garnhams have identified a number of previous owners, but want more information on when the boat was in the possession of those owners and anyone who might have been missed.
