Just new to this site, havnt been able to get this right but Ill try again, pictures to big.
My Dad, Bill Galea, ran a canvas goods manufacturing show in Lismore from the early 50s to late 70s. As a side line and to supplement his fishing passion he set up a bost shop.
He sold Seagulls, Westbends and Scotts with locally produced timber boats. both ply and clinker. I often wonder if any still survive.
With the change over to Mercury he picked up Carribean then Swift craft.
Dad was heavly involved in the Richmond River Powerboat club including the boat races held at Coraki.
see this link <a href="http://s366.photobucket.com/albums/oo103/wpaulg/
to see some of his boats. (HOPE IT WORKS)
I have a few old race boat pictures from that time early to late 60s
