This is the last dinghy built by Bill Brown. One of his sons, Trevor Brown, has had the dinghy since the 1980s. The dinghy was taken to Queensland by Trevor for several years before returning to Tasmania in the 1990s. The dingy was originally painted but was stripped back to bare timber in 2016. One of Trevor’s sons, Steve, has restored the dinghy to its present condition.
