Let's hold our next swearing in ceremony somewhere convenient for our east coast friends and our friends in NZ and down under.* What's in the middle?* The first place that comes to mind is San Diego.

...hey...wait a minute...don't we have a member that lives there...hmmm.* Maybe he could put us all up and let us use his boat.* :confuse:

Darren,

If you'd like any information on the Cheoy Lee 46' LRC, I have owned one for five years now, and am very pleased.* This is the Portland boat that I believe you were referring to.* We just moved her to Oak Harbor, Washington, our new home.* Email address is with my profile.

Mark

Hello Darren and Lisa,

We share a few things in common; we both live in the PNW (I'm just across Admiralty Inlet on Whidbey Island), I too produced and directed television documentaries (PBS, Discovery Networks), my email address*has*nearly the*same name as your*new venture (nwboater)...and I own a Willard 40! But most interesting, before buying Northstar, I took a serious look at the Silver Lady,*moored at that time on Hood Canal. The boat was indeed built by Willard Marine in the 60's and designed by none other than the venerable Willian Garden.*The boat has gone through several owners over the years (I first admired her in the late 90's*on Lake Union.) She is a lot of boat for the money and will probably*make a good home/studio and*cruising boat for the Inside Passage.*As I recall, she is a low-profile, beamy boat with*the signature Garden*Portuguese bridge. The pilothouse/galley*was*spacious and comfy and aft*salon was*huge! When we toured the boat in 2007, she*was in fair condition and I recall the owner assuring me with confidence that she*could leave for Alaska that afternoon -- "with no worries" Maybe you and Lisa will bring her back to Puget Sound? Wish I could offer more useful info*about her machinery, hull, etc., I just recall that she was*too much boat for us, but certainly a handsome and sturdy*appearing*vessel indeed.*Welcome to the "Dark Side" and let us know*what you decide*for your new*floating studio -- Richard******
*Hi Richard -

Wow, we do have a few things in common! Although you did work for PBS and Discovery Networks, so you played in a league a few above mine... Are you in Oak Harbor? Would love to meet you some time and see your Willard, too. Interesting you know about and have actually been aboard "Silver Lady". I'm communicating with the owner directly, and we'll see where everything goes. We aren't going to make any moves until we have our start up funds in place. We have our business plan in front of a few investors who are very interested. The vessel we'll purchase is part of the business, so hopefully we'll be funded soon.

We'll keep you posted!

- Darren

I know little about either boat, but I would be quite concerned about a wooden boat built in the 60s, and even more concerned about a wooden boat kept in Alaska.* Our Defever is fiberglass, and it only took a couple winters to realize that the freeze thaw cycle that takes place can be a quick death to boats.* Full covers, or covered moorage can help, but the amount of rainfall in S/E Alaska assures there will be trapped water that will freeze, and cause damage.* There are plenty of wood boats in Alaska that are in good shape, but they take a huge amount of maintenance.* Hopefully the one your looking at has gotten that maintenance.

*Thanks for the advice. Fortunately, the Garden/Wiilard has only been in Alaska since April. Though she was built in '61, the original owners spent heavily on materials to ensure a long life. She has old growth cypress planking over steam bent white oak frames. Wiilard was building Navy vessels at the time, so they were commissioned to build "Silver Lady" to the same specs. And we'll certainly employ a qualified surveyor who specializes in wood.

*Hi Paul -

Cool! I hadn't found that particular blog. I had found another one, but it didn't have much to it. The one you shared will be fun to go through. And the owners assoc. is a great site. Been there before when I was looking at the Cheoy Lee 43 motorsailers. Nice boat, not quite what we want. Though I'd take one of those Cheoy Lee 52 motorsailers!

*Hi Mark -

I think I will email you, thanks! I came across some of your other posts on this forum, including some nice pics. Your boat looks like she's in great condition. If we don't end up getting the Garden/Willard, the Cheoy Lee 46 is our next choice. I'll be very happy with either boat!

Yah, he knows we're looking at trawlers. But Bob will be the first to say it doesn't matter what kind of boat you have, as long as you're out on the water enjoying the cruising lifestyle...

*Well, he'll certainly spend time on our trawler when he's up here! But I really don't know what he's going to do next boat-wise. He and Jody are ready to get out of under the Shannon. It's an awesome boat, though. He and Walter Schulz designed it specifically to go around the world in speed and comfort. Bob was talking about buying back the Lost Soul (it's been for sale in San Diego for a few years), but I can see him just kicking back at ther house in the Sierra Nevada foothills and making rock walls with his tractor - and sailing charter and other people's boats around the world...
