"ALANA" ...Luke's Album

fit as a fiddle!

This beautiful Skicraft Deluxe "ALANA" was the first of many for Aussie skiboat champion Claude (Luke & Matt's ol' man). A Holden 186 provided endless enjoyment for family and friends for many years mostly out on Eppalock and Mulwala until she was sold to fund "PUNJARRA"(which has recently been found) back in about 1983/84. The family remain close friends with the careful owners of Claude's other previous rides, "MUDDA" and "SCREWLOOSE" leaving Alana the only boat we don't know the whereabouts of unfortunately, can you help?
That ripper little LJ XU1 in these pics was amazingly the families main mode of transport right up until 1994. The little Torrie towed all of these boats over the years and not surprisingly ended up stretched and rusted!
                                          Much more nostalgia still to come from this family album.
