Valiant 40 & 42

The Valiant 40 and 42 are regarded, quite rightly, as excellent cruising boats. Since the transom configuration is, for our purposes, the same, we use the same Monitor mounting drawing for both. We've supplied at least one hundred and ten Monitors to owners of these boats. Several have been sold directly to Valiant Yachts for installation at the factory. We have over three dozen photos of Monitor installations on various boats. We have a video clip sent to us by Laura and Ross Emerson in June 2005. (It's a big file - allow about 40 seconds for a DSL download.) There are also five photos of one Auto-helm installation.

Another unreadable boat name - could be "New Dawn", a Valiant 40. Note the custom boarding ladder affixed to the Monitor frame. Does anyone out there recognize her?
