Queensland Maritime Museum. 20 September 2011.
Penguin is a Torres Strait pearling lugger, built in 1907 on Thursday Island. Originally named Mercia, she was registered as a wooden ketch of 15 tons gross, 46.5ft (14.17m) in length and no engine.
Since arriving at the Queensland Maritime Museum in April, 1982, Penguin has been completely rebuilt and restored.
