LADY CAROLE

I was recently contacted by Nelson boat builder / restore Peter Murton who was seeking some info on Lady Carole that he has in his shed at present for some TLC.

Unfortunately, Lady Carole has suffered some electrochemical / rot issues which Peter is correcting along with a few shoddy repairs she has incurred in the past.

Nathan Herbert has told me that at one stage Lady Carole was owned by his father’s uncle & was based at Whangaroa.

There is speculation that she may have been a Couldrey design, but Harold Kidd commented that she does not appear on Couldrey’s list of designs, but she could well have been inspired by his designs.

So woodys – anyone able to tell us more about Lady Carole?

Make sure you check out WW on tomorrow, there is a great post on the yacht Pirate
