Xsbank--- Remind me where Port Edward is. I know where Seal Cove is, of course. Been in and our of there many times. But not sure about Port Edward. Sounds like a good excuse for a road trip across the border. Thanks.

Not sure what this is, but it's beautiful looking. Obviously not a boat for planing, but she sure is flat out back.

Thanks a bunch for the link! Nice to know it was made by hand in small Japanese villages as opposed to churned out by some computer controlled spirit suffocating machine.

Pretty sure it's a 45DX and is indeed a fancy-pants cherrywood camera...at least it's not one of those ostentatious, over the top, fancy-dancy-pants rosewood or ebony Wista's.

Well it's a long way across the border. Port Edward is a few miles south of Prince Rupert. When you pass the Ridley Island terminal entering PR, Port Ed is behind it, on Porpoise Harbour where the old pulp mill is. The canneries were all along Inverness Channel, which leads south from Port Ed to the Skeena.

Take the ferry from Port Hardy or drive via Prince George and Terrace.

Thanks. We've done the Vancouver-Cache Creek-Prince George-Terrace run several times. Looks like a good excuse to do it again.

Greetings,
Mr. TR. Apologies. My Canadian geographic knowledge is somewhat lacking but since the vessel was registered in Victoria BC. I assumed it to be BC built.

NP RT.....it's an odd regional thing. BC used to build a lot of fiberglass, we don't any more. The Maritimes do fiberglass very well, as does Maine south of the border. Now all new build in BC is aluminum....market forces at work....it's almost impossible to find a fiberglass guy here.....

What's wrong with (ahem) aluminum?

Thanks for that description of the Port Edward location.

I spent a couple of weeks at the old Sunnyside Cannery at Port Edward sometime in the '60s. Very cool.

Marin- Don't know when was the last time you drove the route given. The highway now is about the best road you will drive!! Outstanding construction, passing lanes for slow traffic right. at every opportunity even through the canyon. Timmy Horton and Boston Pitza locations are numrous with great menus. Take in Harrison Hot Springs Resort on the way and enjoy a wonderful German dinner at the Black Forest Resturant. Y

Nothing wrong with aluminum at all, did not mean to give that impression. Good and bad boats can be built of many materials, all have advantages and disadvantages. The major disadvantage to fiberglass in BC right now is that almost no one does it.

I lived at Oona River on Porcher Island for a couple of years in the early 1980's. I made several trips to Sunnyside salvaging building materials before the owner's tore it down completely. It was pretty exciting up on the roof of the main shed, cutting off nail heads and sending sheets of steel flying down.......

Marin- Not knowing when the last time you drove the route to Prince Rupert let me advise you the highway route is just in the very best shape any highway can be maintained. The increase in width of the lanes along with a huge increase of slow traffic right lanes you will find impressive. With Tim Horton drive inns, Boston Pizza restaurants being in all the more populated towns the eating menu have vastly improved. Take a extra day and visit The Harrison Hot Springs resort and it's pools. Enjoy a delightful dinner at the Black Forest Inn, great German fare!!..

Now you have me anxious to take a drive down!!

Tad, did you know or hear of Rosa Delita? I think she was a school teacher in OOna River?

That was a joke about the aluminum. I can see where the inspiration for my boat hull came from, looking at Friendly Cove.

As an interest... in 1948 23' Chris Craft Express, with parents in 40's and three boys (2, 4, 10 yrs old), we cruised New England inland as well as up and down the coast for weeks on end during summers of 1950's. I well recall what fun a 23' boat can be when it's set-up correctly. Dad was a master at boat interior layout with all sorts of nifty designed items that were utilized in many ways to make that 23 footer comfortably accommodate all five of us.

As we boys grew... so did boat sizes. eventually it was a 37' raised deck, flying bridge, sport fish beauty that dad and I completely refinished over a period of several years. Turned her into an enclosed salon family boat! What fun!!
At five knots with the BOB Volvo, she burned just less than a quart per hour. So 20mph. There was literally not so much as a ripple when the boat moved through the water. I went blazing (okay, so it was just 5 knots!) by the FWC (Florida Water Cops) in a Slow/No Wake zone without blinking an eye.

There'd be movement of water aft but nothing. It was crazy wonderful.
That was a 15hp motor running at 1100rpm.

The new Kubota is 18hp and a friend has this same motor in his tractor. He says at 1750rpm the tractor burns 1 liter in two hours. I am curious as to what my results will be moving through the water and assume it will be less than him barreling through the woods on his property on four wheels.

We shall see. Even at 20mph I've a range of nearly 750 miles.

Seaweed is quite a little boat.

I knew a gal named Susan that lived on a 25' Chris Craft when I was a kidlet. She had a dog named Rags. Her daddy lived on a sports-fish and mom had a double cabin yacht-boat. When they moved, all three boats went in ducky-style, one after the other.

Dad fished and drank. Mom shopped and drank. Daughter and I played pirates and Indians.

The 40'er I grew up aboard (a sedan cruiser) started out a bow with a small windshield and a little overhang. The engine was boxed in and I rode my tricycle around the box. Later the cabin (saloon) overhead was extended (many times, over the years) and the boat of course evolved.

Don't tell you-know-who, but she ended up with a fly-bridge. If you own something nearly 50 years though it's natural to change things as needed/desired.

Seaweed is changing too -- it's why I could pick a boat that wasn't all I needed on purchase. I knew that with time I'd add the things to make her more.

So far, so good.
