BLANCHETOWN'S BLUE LADY



This very special lady has served the one family for 40+ years now. The long history began when Michael's uncle purchased the Lukey Rapid near new way back in about '69. A fibreglass replacement was obtained by the family in the mid '80s and old faithful was hidden away under tarps for the next 5 years. This is where Micheal stepped in (then at the tender age of 21) and along with the help of his Father, treated her to a deserving restoration ...the results speak for themselves. A 230 Dodge flathead pushes her along at a speed elegant enough to win the heart of anyone lucky enough to catch a glimpse. Grant Mustang twirler is the finishing touch (ridgee Falcon wheel stored away safely).
Dearly loved, she has become somewhat of a special occasion boat these days with a couple of other steeds taking on the work loads (one of these rippers coming up shortly ;)
Thanks so much for the treat Michael, she's beautiful!

***I've finally found someone to share all my Lukey info with :) Expect to see bits and pieces published here  on ASB soon.Was starting to think there might not be any examples left, please get in touch if YOU know of any Lukey's or have pics to share (cruisers & glass 'Mustang' etc. also). Cheers.
