John Young has been investigating getting our Montagu Whaler, affectionately numbered 536, onto the Historic Boats Register, and it turns out that good old 537 still survives and can be viewed aboard HMAS Castlemaine in Williamstown (Melbourne).  See first pic below.  The second pic shows the sternpost from our boat, and tells us that she was built in Brisbane, 7-8-53.  According  to the Castlemaine website 537 was built in Brisbane in August '53.
