Hello,
Normally I keep no records of sailing ships under 100 tons, but I did find the WOOLAMAI as I have the Mercantile Navy List for the years 1936/1937 which lists ALL British flag ships, however small. The WOOLAMAI is listed as having been built at Bass,Western Point, in 1912. She measured 31 register tons and was owned in 1936 by James Steel & Co., Melbourne. No further details.
The THREE CHEERS is no longer listed in the 1936/1937 edition and probably no longer existed in 1936.
Regards,
Luc,Antwerp

According to "Western Port Wrecks and Maritime Mishaps" by Arthur E Woodley. Woolamai was originally Little Angelina built in 1875 at Williamstown. She was rebuilt in 1913 at Bass on WesternPort Victoria. As part of the rebuild she was fitted with an eleven and a half horsepower auxiliary engine.

Gentlemen, your info and the litlle info I have on her : Built in 1875 at Williamstown as LITTLE ANGELINA (60.4x16.8x5.3 ft.)
Rebuilt and renamed in 1912 as WOOLAMAI. She was renamed again in 1929 into : BRITTANIA
Went ashore at Clifton Springs during a gale on August 25, 1931 but the vessel was later refloated.

Regards, Melle
