Grand Banks 42 hull # 17 built in Hong Kong in 1966. This boat was originally "Watermaiden" in Boston, MA. Sold by Richard Bertram to a doctor in Marina Del Rey, CA and a 5 man crew took her through the canal to CA.

The next owner was Chris Bose of Startrek, The Fall Guy, T J Hooker and other Sci-Fi shows. Renamed "Viewfinder" Lee Majors and Farrah Fawcett used the boat for a reconciliation cruise to Catalina that failed.
Next owner Wes Niday named it "Lomcevak"

I bought her form Wes and changed her to Heads Up 2/14/2001 Valentines Day.

Tried to upload a photo but it wouldn't work. My picture on the left is a painting that was made of the boat for a magazine cover.

I used to be the proud owner of a a GB32, Woodie, Hull #220 and would love to know what happened to her. Sold her in the mid to late eighties in Los Angeles to an old couple who transported her to the Pacific Northwest.

Now I have a poor man's GB36, a.k.a. 1976 34' MarineTrader/CHB :-)

SeaMoose, According to gbwoodies.com the 1971 GB 32 Sedan hull #220 is now named "CALLISTA" and is owned by Gilles Randon from Porto Vecchio, Corsica, France!
No indication where she is moored. Could be still in PNW I suppose. It is a unlikely your "old" buyer would have transporter her to France.
Hope this helps. Smooth sailing, Layne

Congratulations. Your hull number is not that higher than ours so it's very possible your hull, like ours, was molded and finished under the direct supervision of Howard Abbey, one of the major pioneers in big-boat fiberglass construction.

In addition to designing and building the molds in Singapore for American Marine's GB36 and GB42 models he was also instrumental in setting up Hatteras' fiberglass assembly process.

Howard directly supervised the molding of every GB hull from the first one, GB36-360 in mid-1973 until partway through 1974 when he left the company which he felt had over-extended itself to the brink of financial crisis (he was correct).

American Marine brought him back several times in later years to solve production problems that had emerged because the yard had drifted away from Howard's hull molding processes and an increasing number of hull problems were developing with GBs after delivery.

The fiberglass GB36 and GB42 hulls built under the direct supervision of Howard are considered by many to be the best GB hulls ever built.

If you have not already joined the GB owners forum (IAGBO) I strongly recommend that you do. Great place to get your questions answered. http://www.grandbanksowners.com

Thank you for the History snapshot Marin. I have been posting some questions on the GB forum and have read a lot about these boats there. We are excited to cruise her this season and learn about the systems we have on board. I lurked there for several years as we owned two other boats, an Albin 25 and a Willard 30.

Hi Neighbor!
I'm over at Anchor Pointe BAM near Curtice with a poor man's GB (Marine Trader). There's a beautiful GB 42 with CAT 3208's, meticulously kept, across the channel from us.
