Bushranger was built in Paynesville, moulded from an original timber Paynesville fishing boat.  Bushranger was originally moored at Sandringham, Port Phillip Bay until 2013 when she was brought home to the Lakes by Jenny and Mark Doubleday, her new owners.  She was in very poor condition and Frecheville/Heaney restored her to her current beautiful condition, sticking as much as possible to the traditions of a gaff rig “Paynesville Fisher”.  Bushranger is technically a 'net boat', with gaff rig and head sail, and inboard diesel.
