This photo is of a boat a group of Whitsunday residents owned during the 1960’s. The photo taken about 1965 give or take a year or two. The photo was taken close to the current VMR site. It shows the boat being wound up into the boatshed, which was in a cutting in the mangroves, just south of the existing rock wall around the VMR carpark. In those days there were a number of “boatshed leases” around the various foreshores from Cannonvale, Airlie to Shute.
