    This lines plan of the 90 foot motor cruiser EMMA, Halvorsen job number 1296, consisted of a profile, superimposed body plan with diagonals, and a plan view below. Drawn to a scale of 3/4":1', the plan was traced by Warwick Hood after an original design by Harvey Halvorsen.

    EMMA was the last large boat to be built at the Halvorsen's Ryde boatyard. It was built for private use for A V Nelson and launched in June 1976. EMMA was powered by twin 1350 horsepower V12 MTU engines.
    SignificanceThe Samuel J Hood photographic collection records an extensive range of maritime activity on Sydney Harbour, including sail and steam ships, crew portraits, crews at work, ship interiors, stevedores loading and unloading cargo, port scenes, pleasure boats and harbourside social activities from the 1890s through to the 1950s. They are also highly competent artistic studies and views - Hood was regarded as an important figure in early Australian photojournalism. Hood’s maritime photographs are one of the most significant collections of such work in Australia.
