Woody David Cooke spotted the 1950 Billy Rogers designed and built 36’ launch – Lady Diana earlier this week in Parekura Bay, Bay of Islands. From the photo she appears to be in good hands – looking very smart.
Lady Diana made an appearance of WW back in 2014, link below to view more photos. https://waitematawoodys.com/2014/04/18/lady-diana/

Can we get an update on what she has been up to in the last 8+ years.
Lady Diana looking good at moment. Spends her time in Te Uenga Bay next to Waipiro Bay and has for many years. Is used regularly. Some time ago you could have bought into a partnership in her.
