Wood on Water in Australia

Postby Greg » 30 Oct 2018, 10:47

A reminder about the opportunity to enter into the raffle being conducted by the Classic Australian Wooden Power Boat Association.

The prize in this raffle is the excellent coffee table book, WOOD ON WATER IN AUSTRALIA – Edition V, by Graham Lloyd*.

The publication features 35 timber ski/race-boats and launches, covering a broad range of this style of boat from the 1920’s up until the 1970’s. Some of the builders featured are Lewis, Simpkin, Goldsbrough, Eddy and Everingham, to name just a few.

This high quality hardcover book measures 32 by 28 cms and is printed using Premium Lustre Photo Paper. It contains 218 pages of high quality photos showing both action and detail, with coverage of the history and restoration of many of the boats with associated text.

WOOD ON WATER IN AUSTRALIA – Edition V is a limited edition and won’t be found in any bookshops. It normally retails for $260.00 plus postage.

The CAWPBA is raffling one of these books. Tickets are $5.00 each, with the raffle expected to be drawn in late November. Proceeds from the raffle will go towards the running of the CAWPBA.

For those who have already received an email regarding the raffle, entry instructions remain the same. For others, if you wish to purchase tickets, send an advisory email to info@cawpba.com or secretary@cawpba.com.

This a great publication and would make a fine addition to any bookcase. Further details about the book can be found at: https://www.powerboatbooks.com/wood-on- ... ts-listing

Time is ticking away. Not long before ticket sales close.
