Thanks Tad. I like the looks of her but am suspicious she could be a bit rolly with that length/beam/weight? Sail and fish both I see.

Not really easy to roll, but very snappy to recover from rolling. And any movement will be exaggerated up in the tall pilothouse.

Passagemaker Magazine did an article on this vessel back around the time she was launched. As I recall the sail rig was quite substantial so presumably would go a long way toward dampening the roll.

Grammar alert: I should have said "Damping the roll".

My "NEW" Favorite boat! That's something I seldom ever say! I don't recall the last time I stated the same thing; been at least a couple decades. This boat really moves me!!


Thanks for posting West. That boat, Cape Ross, can last for centuries if continually well tended to. I reviewed the linked pictures, specs, and other copy. Her name should never be changed. That is a great piece of finely designed and crafted "floating soul". Rugged X 10! Heck... She was even built in my birth year! We're kin!!

I think at one time it was up toward the million mark. In Canadian dollars.

A quick google search shows it at $699K. I assume that was a good price, all things considered.

Yes, I was just looking at that. Hard to know, but I assume it is a recent posting.

Cape Ross is well loved boat. We see her often in the summer loaded up with multiple generations of people having fun on the water.

Thanks, Conrad

Good story on her and her restorer/owner. If my life was in the correct position I'd go to see her for purpose of purchase. It was love at first sight for me when I focused on her picture and reviewed the link. Chemistry in boat love, although different than chemistry in people love, is still similarly rooted in the magic of "attractions" that bring two together and can produce a happy union. Ya just get "that" feeling!

Everything above the deckedge is new welded aluminum, plus a whole new interior and all new systems. The conversion was intended to turn her into a small passenger vessel, meeting all requirements that entails. That didn't work out and she's now a family cruiser based south of the border. Your guess is off by a factor of 5-6

...from the blog!!!

. It's an old table seiner turned yacht but you'd do just as well calling the Cape Ross a historic obsession.

The history includes 50 years of commercial fishing on the coast. The obsession is John Dolmage's.

Over the past five years he's put 10,000 hours or more into rebuilding the seiner originally built in 1952 for the Canadian Fishing Company (Canfisco).

10,000 hours work.....!

Greetings,
Mr. R. 10K hrs of work does seem like an obsession or a perfect way to keep occupied. (I think the latter). But if he's asking $1.75 million my math works that out to be $175/ hour-materials. Hmmm....Maybe I'm in the wrong business...

RT "asking" is the operative word.

How did you get $1.75 Million from an asking price of $699K ?

I remember reading about and seeing photos of this boat some years ago, I think put up by OFB of this forum. Where south of the border is the boat based these days?
