I was wondering what to do for today’s photo when I read an article about the restoration of the MV Cartela. She is about to go into a specially made dry dock for further restoration before being reunited with her original steam engine.
I looked amongst my photos and discovered one I had forgotten about from 2009 when she was still based in Hobart. This was taken during the Wooden Boat Festival of that year. The interior photo two years later when we were fortunate enough to cruise on the Derwent with her.
Then she came down to Franklin via Port Huon in 2014. That is one of my favourite photos.
Recently while on our “Yukon” trip I was able to photograph Cartela from the other side.
I hope that I’ll be able to photograph her fully restored one day and enjoy a trip from Hobart to New Norfolk.
