Marcos eventually went to a steel chassis.The reason being accident damadge
Nether panelbeaters or Boat Builders were keen to do repairs to the Chassis.
Stressed skin timber aircraft design played a part in the ' John Spencer Boats '
Schooling , as did the R.N.Z.A.F. at Whenuapai, circa 1948.
There were many photographs of the hull under construction in the yard at Browns Bay.
Mostly of interior , Fittings /rigging and the yacht going out of the shed, through up the hill out of Browns Bay.
Browns Bay now is covered in houses.The shed is still there though somewhat delapidated/neglected.
the Bays could have been said to be utopian in the 60s, there mostly 'affected' now.The type that continually
whined about the machinery . such is progress . Sealife has declined through the area.
"Those damn fizz boats scareing the fish", and jetskies , etc, etc.
