2009 May, Paul B, seen on forum... "We know at least one of the three original Peterson/Eichenlaub pin tail QTs (Valkyrie) was cut up a few years ago. No one seems to know where the other two are ("Tickled Pink" and "El Principio")."
2015 May, informations
and picture from Dutch QT Facebook: "'Valkyrie'
was one of the three Eichenlaub built Peterson designed 1/4 tonners. Carl Eichenlaub
built an aluminum mast step structure after they found the bottom once too often
in a Hot Rum race and broke the keelson. Rob and Lynne Britton bought 'Valkyrie'
from the Neal/Riley/Hartman trio in 1976, they continued to build the SDYC fleet
with Goose and then got Nelson to design 'Blivit' (which was unbeatable). 'Star
Eyed Stel...la' joined the fleet from SWYC. Those were the days, they started
40 + boats in 3 MORA classes every other weekend. Racing 25 foot boats in the
Cabrillo series.... Rob and Lynne donated 'Valkyrie' to Orange Coast in 1989,
sounds like she had a long and productive life. Heard the boat was cut up later...
Anyone more info?"
