Is that the Boeing corp. boat? This vessel spends a part of each summer here in Campbell River and area. On a trip to mexico a few years ago, I found her berthed in Barra Mexico.

As far as I know it's still owned by Boeing. I guess it's used as a corporate "sales" tool, hence those famous fishing locations.

Motorhome boat

I looked back through several pages and did not see this one posted. Although not a classic boat with interesting lines...an interesting "boat" none the less.

Yes, very interesting, but is it full or semi-displacement, and where is the anchor? Single engine with a genset, no doubt. Draft? Running aground shouldn't be much of an issue.

How much more dough would one need to lay out just to impress the guys at the dock?

Yes, it replaced the original Daedalus/A and Eagle for the reasons I explained earlier.

It's used during the summer to host fishing trips for company customers. The original Daedelus was used on Lakes Union and Washington to host dinner cruises and meetings for company customers during the winter.

The original Daedelus, or at least a predecessor of the current one, came to Campbell River in the summer as well. I got to know the chef on the boat, who went so far as to rent a house in town so that he could bring his wife and kids up for the summer.

That would have been Chef John. He and the captain were the ones who hired me to write the book about the boat. At that time, Daedalus was based at April Point for the summer season. Guests were flown up to Campbell River and taken over to the Daedelus, which would then head out for Vancouver Bay near the Arran Rapids between Stuart Island and the mainland. After three days of fishing and other activities the Daedalus would return to April Point, the guests would depart and the next group would arrive.

Initially Daedalus remained at her dock in Vancouver Bay and the guests were flown in by floatplane. But it wasn't good for the boat to just sit all summer, so the captain initiated the idea of basing out of April Point and including the run to and from Vancouver Bay in the guests' itinerary. This proved to be extremely popular.

I don't know if the current Daedalus follows this same routine. The captain of the original Daedalus, Hal Burchard, helped select the new Daedalus for Boeing and served as her captain for awhile. He subsequently left to go over to Hawaii and operate the short-lived and controversial interisland ferry. He has since returned to the Seattle area but I'm not sure what he's doing these days.

Nor do i know if Chef John remained with the new Daedalus or has moved on to other things. He is an outstanding chef and during the winter months was in demand as a guest chef at some of Seattle's finest restaurants. The menu plans and recipes in the coffee table cookbook we created are fantastic and the book has become a collector's item.

This may have been it's first sail after extensive refit. As they haven't painted her new name yet.

John was in my store last summer, I think, or perhaps the summer before. He did serve as chef on the new Daedelus. He is probably still. In a previous life, I worked in the produce department at the grocery store where he stocked his larder, so I would see him fairly often.

John told me he liked shopping for ingredients on Quadra because the "ex-hippie" gardeners grew such great stuff.

Ah geez those hippies again... I worked in Campbell River at the Super Valu grocery store. We had great produce. Maybe after it closed, ( long after I left) John gravitated to Quadra foods. Me, a hippie, not so much!

My son rode our waverunner and jumped the wake of this one from Oregon Iron Works. It is a new one for the Seals and SOCOM. Total stealth boat.

"Stiletto" looks very pretty! Nice for the show and tell of an itty bitty.

If I may Segway... Reminds me of a really skinny model strutting the fashion runway.

Great to ogle at flipping her tush while presenting nude back... but... just too darn breakable as things might get a bit overboard in the sack... err sea!

Happy 2015!

Looks like a New York YC pennant on the bow.
