CAROLINE
Caroline was built by Roger Carey for Gilbert Rivas of Whitianga in 1951. She still has her original 3LW Gardner & measures 36’L x 10’B x 4′ 6″D. She still has her original 3LW Gardner. She was maintained by Howard Pascoe.

The photo above shows her berthed at Whitanga, Baden commented that it was nice to see an old girl return to her home port.

Do we know anything about her past life?

  1. By the way I was lucky to run into Bar-K-Lin earlier this year in Nelson. Her owner has done a lot to make her live on able. Long accommodation fits her OK.

  2. Carolines story is told in the book “By boats we live” by Joan Clark, daughter of Roger Carey with lots of lovely illustrations.
    I was lucky enough to sail on Caroline with John Walker in Feb 1982 for a trot line trip to the back of the Barrier.
    The trip was cut short due to my uncle being drowned on Tika
