Letters to the Editor 09/04/2015 – Young hands take on restoration. The Islander, Thursday April 9, 2015Dear Editor,
Nanjing Night Net

Regarding your article on the CORJAN(February 19, 2015) .

The boat was built by my father-in-law,Harry Alexander Frank Ewen, a VictorHarbor cray fisherman and grandson ofAlexander Ewen who was the last managerof the Encounter Bay whaling station.Corjan was built in the mid-1950s andnamed after Harry’s daughters Coralie(my wife) and Janet.

Harry fished from Victor Harbor toKangaroo Island on Corjan up to the late1960s when he sold her and purchased alarger boat “John Edwin”.

I spent many enjoyable Christmas holidaysfishing with Harry on the Corjanfrom Victor to Kangaroo Island and around“the pages”.

I hope Corjan can be restored to her formerglory, and would love to know of herfate.

Bill MoseleyMentone, Victoria
