Tom McAdam’s new boat Rosalie was launched at Mordialloc creek on 21st September 2013.

After naming, blessing, and some toasting, she was rowed down the creek and out onto Port Philip Bay and performed beautifully. 

She is a Chesapeake Light Craft Skerry, designed by John Harris. Construction began almost a year prior in Mildura, Victoria and she was built from a kit supplied by Cape Boat Works in NSW.
