Ebony

 

 

 

 

Ebony was built in 1961 by Bruce Walker in Heyfield in Victoria. It had been ordered by a Mr Granger of Traralgon
 

 

At some time, the original side valve Dodge 6 cylinder was replaced by a 308.

In 1983, the boat was sold to a Mr A Rae of Bairnsdale.

 

 

It was purchased by Ian Wagstaff in 2005, who restored the boat and installed the original triple carburettor Dodge sv with brass head, before offering it for sale again
 

 

Ebony is still in the Gippsland area
