Pilot Boat ‘Rip’  attending the clipper ship ‘Lightning’ off Shortland Bluff – just outside Pt. Phillip Heads (Vic.) . They were two of the fastest vessels of their class at the time, over 100 years ago. The ‘Rip’ was built in the same yard as the schooner ‘America’, which won the America’s Cup in 1851.            (Reproduced from the original by G. Gregory).
