Canopus

Canopus
Name: Canopus
Boat Owner: Huw Griffiths
Designer: unknown
Builder: Horace Frimley
Description:

A late example of a traditional Bass Strait fishing boat, originally named Alison after the first owner’s daughter, used as a couta boat in the 40s and 50s. In the 70s renamed Canopus by her owner Robert Scott, and converted for coastal cruising. Listed in the book ‘Those That Survive’ by Graeme Broxam, pg. 62. Purchased in 2018 as a 50th birthday present. I would like to acknowledge the amazing effort of the previous owners, thanks for the good times and great fishing ahead!
