Pearl Shell Carrier PLEAIDES A85

CURRENT STATUS - POSSIBLE RESCUE

A Torres Strait pearl shell carrier in need of complete restoration. Known as Pleaides Q, she is over 60ft on deck and has been stored in a shed in the Northern Territory for years. Hull and deck are worse than when we first rescued Antonia A99. A fund of in excess of $350,000 would be required to attempt this vessel and as such is not in our forward planning.

Have you got history of her?

Please let us know if you have any information about Pleaides Q including pictures or information on her working days.
