The Spider T is a historic vessel that dates back to the 1920s. Built by Warren's Shipyard in New Holland, it was made to transport cargo and was one of a pair.
It was in use until the 1970s and then fell into disrepair. Later, it was bought by Mal Nicholson in the mid-90s.
A wreck when acquired, Mal lovingly restored the Spider T to its original condition with the addition of some new features.
