Marie Louise

What seems a lifetime ago this old couta boat was brought to us for a new deck and cabin. Upon the dismantling process we found that there was a lot more required, as is often the case. This was a basket case. We needed to fit new planks, re rib entirely and fit new floors and engine beds before even thinking about a deck and cabin plan. The enlightened owners decided that it was more fitting for Marie Louise to be rebuilt rather than suffer the ignomy of being made into a garden ornament and flower bed.

So that is what we did. And now over a decade later this old girl still gives great pleasure to her owners. And also to us as it is we who enjoy the maintenance work and seeing her grace the waters of the Gippsland Lakes.
