Searching for Zephyr

Dear H Y C…

I was wondering if anyone there could help me. I’m trying to track down the whereabouts of an 1873 gaff cutter called the Zephyr. A guy I know in Melbourne said she was sold fairly recently (she was previously berthed at RMYS) and that he thought she might be on Westernport Bay. I sailed on her back in 1980 when she was fitted out as a cray boat, working out of Kingscote, Kangaroo Island. I’m coming down to Frankston next week, and would love to have a chance to see her if she’s anchored somewhere nearby.
