of Port Arthur. Sadly, in the hands of her second owner, she was wrecked in Queensland waters in the early 1960s. 'Donita was built of Tasmanian hardwood on the solid frame principle. This means she was built in one piece and turned over and adzed - it was very heavy work and was the only boat done that way to one of my designs. "The complete design I prepared included heavy laminated steam-bent ribs and a large open fish-well. By agreement the ribs were replaced with solid frames and the well with a circulating tank and freezer. Cooking crays at sea was found to be unsatisfactory."
