Woodys – Caprice has to be the buy of the year (so far), was previously listed at $30k, her owner (last 35 years) needs to sell her. Price dropped to $10k. Will someone buy her. She measures 34′ , has a 60hp Ford & as you’ll see in the photos below – is a lot of boat for the price. More details on her here https://waitematawoodys.com/2013/11/17/caprice-2/ Thanks to Nathan Herbert for the trade listing heads up

A CAPRICE was built by the Grandison brothers in 1916 and looked a bit like this eventually but was longer at 36ft. For many years she was owned by John W Andrew, the Ford agent. Around 15 years ago she was at Mangonui owned by Les Barclay of Redan Motors, Kaitaia. Ken Ricketts knows her well. Same boat or just same name?
I reckon PATERANGI wasn’t built under that name. Any clues as to the original? She sank in Shoal Bay in April 1973.
