p.3 New Yacht - Mr. Tomlinson, of Portsmouth, is building a new yacht for Mr. Harry Allen, with which Mr. Allen hopes to take the shine out of the craft which at present upholds the honour of the harbour. The new boat is to have a capacity of ten tons, will be painted light blue and will be called the Maud. The builder hopes to have her ready by the 24th, so that she will be able to compete at the Gananoque races on that day. We hope to see her take the wind out of Gananoque sails.
