The wreck of the Cherry Venture

The wreck of the Cherry Venture

My grandparents moved to Caloundra in Queensland in 1972. After this we began the trek of driving to Caloundra for our summer holidays. I remember when they were still trying to float this boat. It was on the new quite often when the tide and wind was right and they attempted to refloat it. They had dredges to dig channels and tugs to haul, but after a few years they gave up.

When it ran aground it was quite a new boat and was blue and white. This photo was taken about 10 years later.

Here are some images by others which show how much it has deterioated.
