Name: Rallinga
Boat Owner: David & Pepita Nichols
Designer: Bernard Wilson
Builder: Bernard Wilson

The Rallinga was built by Bernard Wilson in Briabunna, for Peter and Barbara Wilson to carry tin from Port Davey. Upon Peter’s retirement, Doug King bought it and undertook a magnificant restoration.
David and Pep Nichols purchased the Rallinga in April 2017. David was a professional lobster fisherman for over 50 years, owning the fishing vesels: Greta H; Rhona H; Sydney Lewis; Lewies Pride and finally the ‘Karalinga’.
He fished the South and South West Coast of Tasmania, spending much time in Port Davey and has many interesting stories to tell. Within 3 years after David’s retirement, he needed another boat and so the Rallinga came into the family. He is continuing Doug’s work.
