Kaprice is now 55 years old. She was designed by Bill Garden in the late summer of 1960, and built over the winter in Seattle by Vic Franck. She is Garden design #436. 60' x 17' x 5' draft, 84,000 lbs displacement with 10,000 in ballast. Original power was a Cat D 337F (it might still be in there) which produced about 300HP with the turbocharger. Design speed was 10 knots, just about "hull speed" for a 55' waterline. Planking is 1.5" yellow-cedar on close spaced (10" centers) 1.75" x 2.5" bent oak frames, in NW fashion there are lots of longitudinal stringers inside the frames. Her keel is 5.5" x 11.5" Fir, a surprisingly light structure for so large a boat. But it's held up well, today she looks like she just came out of Franck's shop.....

Her name is now Capella

Thanks Tad for great information on a Classy Vessel!
What sort of designs are you currently working on (if you are able to share)?

Me thinks she's Johnny Depps but that's just a guess.

There's that one looking nearly exactly like dad's boat in the 1960's/70's... it's in the back here. It was in another pict in earlier post... with "dad's" power boat as feature close-up.

It's a landing craft for transfering equipment/cargo onto a beach where there's no dock. They come pretty big, usually for getting logging equipment ashore on islands in BC.

Hi.

nsail.

We have smaller versions of this landing craft used by the police / emergency services to get over to North Stradbroke island out of hours or when the vehicular ferries have stopped running at night.

They are ideal for that task.

For the Elco fans on the forum, a 1938 cabin cruiser on the hard. Hull restoration is just about done. Top side work will be done overboard.

Actually, I knew it was a landing craft and have no idea why I typed barge. I see them all the time in the PNW.

However, what I've never seen before is a high speed one, or, one that looks that nice (the paint looked perfect wherever I could see it).

Tad's Facebook page has a recent "concept of the day" sketch of a 32 foot passagemaker. Very interesting, worth a look.

This Romsdahl type trawler pulled in behind Blue Sky this morning. Will try to get a better photo once the rain stops.

Had a quick chat with the owner, and we immediately got into a discussion about anchors....

Conrad,
Looks like he's missing a bit of planking topside.

You may be right Eric; hard to tell but it almost looks as though that is intentional (not originally though I'd say.) The vessel does need significant work.

They just lost their anchor (caught on the bottom somehow) and so we had the discussion. No lives were lost, no fists flew, and no tempers were lost.

Rocna it is.

Interesting boats

I like this boat. Studly profile. Could tow a barge from the swim platform. 😄

Why is the swim platform so ridiculously big?
