Why the outboard fitted to the transom if it has 2 good engines?

The OB is on the next door boat. The saloon windows slant aft on the back window and I do seem to think the widows are uniform in size and design on an original GB. That there is no fly bridge, noted but the pilot house front windows just seem to be different as well, not just the bright work on them which in itself is unusual for a GB, unless on purpose. Just a bit strange in total.

Hi Art, You bet'ch!! ( A little 'Sarah P' there) Much Moola.

I was fornatuate to have met Bill Page, the original owner of this brokeage. He and his wife were prone to come to the West Coast of B.C. and purchase a fishing boat and cruise the shore line in B.C. and South East Alaska. His quest when I was introduced was the collection of naturel Yellow and Red Cedar crooks to be used in the construction of his then new boat under construction back in Maine. Quite the character. I think I posted a short story related to our association. He had admired our converted harbor tug 'Tenacious' steering wheel construction/pattern. Howeven in admiring he indicated a mar from my simple auto pilot (Bungee Cord) end where is marked the varnish finish. It bothered him to the extent the following year after this admiration being done in Wrangell, Alaska, and again meeting he and his wife in Prince Rupert B.C. the following year, while I was playing golf, he came over with a small vile of varnish and artist brush, sanded out the flaw and gave it a coat of varnish. Left both with my wife with instructions to follow up!!!
A couple of years later we received a RSVP to the launching of his new boat, a model after Canadian gill netter. I think that Tad, our site naval Architect has photos of this new boat as he knows or as time has passed perhaps Bill.. It is a beaut.

Regards,
Al-Ketchikan

Dock Street Brokers ::
6,200 gals -: 4500 miles = 0.73 mpg (1.377 gal per mi) at 10 knots hull speed. = 450 hrs travel = 18.75 24/7 days. Not too shabby... just think of the range if only traveling at 6 to 8 knots.

Just use plenty of Clorox on fish tanks before departure!

Yeah, the Queen. I circled her twice while she was waiting for a bridge opening on the ICW and collected about a dozen photos from every angle before dropping my camera into the water.

Taconite is gorgeous. Watching her dock using those direct reversing engines is a treat. Just watching her steam by, blowing smoke rings, is also a treat.
I hope he finds a buyer willing to keep her in BC. Would be sad to lose her.
