The Alfreda was built in 1922 by Ted Robinson.  Ted was a fisherman and a boat builder, and in winter would sometimes put the Alfreda on a truck and take her to Mallacoota to fish.  This boat was also fished out of by his son, Bill "Rummy" Robinson.  She was formerly named the Ellen, competing in the 1930 Paynesville Regatta under that name when sailed by Bill "Rummy" Robinson.  Source: Directory of Paynesville Boat Builders and Wooden Boats, Bruce Reynolds and Peter Stokes.
