VALERIE – A Work In Progress
Valerie was built in 1931, in Milford. 31’ kauri planked with an oregon cabin top. As you will observe from the photos she really is a project boat crying out for someone to take her on and completer the restoration / rebuild. She comes with a 1990 Ford 60hp diesel.
Currently hauled out on Aucklands North Shore – any Woodys looking for project?
Her trademe listing is light on details- does anyone know more about Valarie?
UPDATE 22-10-2019 ex Nathan Herbert – Valerie was built by W.Kendall and H.G. Lodge at Milford, c.1938. Photo below

One of the pictures appears to show this boat’s name as Valerie, not Valarie. Is this the same Valerie as in the listing you have for Valerie, owned by Mr King of Timewell and King, butchers, of Whangarei?
Good spotting Richard – thank you, I have amended. Alan H
