A piece of History

IMG_0317    Grete is a German built North Sea Fishing boat.  Built in 1937 it has recently been sold to a young couple who plan to take it to Papua New Guinea.  It arrived on a ship from Panama recently and has been slipped to fix a few problems with leaks etc.  It has a copper sheathed bottom, 50 ft long on the waterline and is obviously a boat that has had an interesting past.  Its registration papers have the German Swastika on the top.
