John Noble of Kingscote has kindly donated the “Josephene”, together with trailer to RIG. “Josephene “ is a Roberts 32’ built by John, now 97, in the 80’s. She has a Gardner 3LW engine with massive gearbox, 3 blade prop, as well as keel lead and numerous fittings which will be available for the “Independence” build. RIG acknowledges John's generosity and will move the vessel to American River in the coming weeks.
