Dedicated to and assisted by the Beashel family, who were famous 18ft sailors.  One of the key marks within Sydney Harbour is named the “Beashel Buoy“ and the name “Alruth” is a combination of Alf Beashel and his wife’s name Ruth.  Their grandson, Colin, represented Australia in sailing and was Australian Team Captain and Flag Bearer at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games.

The plans for the replica boat were drawn up from the half model made by Ken Beashel.

Dedication text on boat: “ To Alf Beashel”
