Another delivery was the 36-foot schooner Julie J, built at Montague Bay, Tasmania, by Fred Wilson. She was sold to Bill Ashby of Geelong on behalf of the owners. She was fitted with a swinging davit (installed in Hobart) in order to handle Bill Ashby's partially paralised wife Clyda, on and off the yacht. Jock, Bill Ashby, Bill Watson and John Griggs were the crew for the delivery trip to Indented Head, Port Phillip. In 1958, John Muir crewed with Jock in the delivery trip on board 33-foot Renene to Melbourne and again some ten years later in Gabrielle III, which was to be shipped to Canada from Melbourne. In the late sixties, Jock delivered Mistral VIII to Melbourne with son Ross, Andre van Nieuwenhuysen and Adam Brinton in crew: "Early in the morning of our last day at sea and south of Westernport Bay, we sailed very close to a submarine with a six inch periscope. On our arrival we reported it to the Department of Naval Affairs who stated that it definitely wasn't Australian!" In all, during the fifties and sixties, Jock delivered about thirteen boats to Melbourne and a further twenty-five to Sydney.
