Have been thinking about the name on the boat including where to place it and what else I might want to go along side the name.
With out question I am going to rename the boat “ANZAC”, the name she had when my great grandfather was her skipper. To this I was going to add “Sulphur Beach, NZ” underneath in reference to her initial builders Bailey and Lowe who’s yard was on Sulphur Beach.
I will have this in the center of the stern with “ANZAC” forming an arch over the top with “Sulphur Beach, NZ” forming the opposite curve on the bottom in a slightly smaller font.
I may include some aspects of the WW1 NZEF badge in some way – still thinking about how.
Am also thinking about putting “ANZAC” on the port and starboard side of the forward hull – we will see.
