Wouldn't want to be next to this one.

Whatever this is, it was in the Sidney Marina today. There is missing and rotted planking on both sides. Holes big enough to reach through. Wooden stanchions 80% rotted away. I wonder how a boat like that could even be insured or allowed in a marina.

Maybe having a Rocna brings privilege?

From the planking around the pilothouse and the canoe stern I would think that is a Malahide. If it is, it's a very cool boat. If memory serves, they were initially made by Southern Marine, a boatbuilder located in Malahide, Ireland. Later, construction moved to Portugal I believe.

They are hell built for stout. The first Malahide was launched in 1972, the last one toward the end of the 70s,

If the owner is in the process of or plans to bring it up to snuff, it will be a hell of a boat when it's done. Malahide's are well worth preserving and restoring.

Here is a link to a Passagemaker article about them if you want to know more. http://www.passagemaker.com/articles...trawler-yacht/

Very cool! It looks like a work in progress as those are stripped bulwarks not stantions...

I went to Malahide once, great place, in fact I stayed at the Grand Malahide Hotel and consumed tons of Guinness in the hotel bar, only to find out later that "the best pub in Dublin" (which would have to be one fine establishment) was just around the corner. I Didn't know and I never got there!

Had an "authentic" Guinness at a tavern in Cork, Ireland about ten years ago. Never a great fan of the drink (compared to other beers), but Cork was the appropriate place to consume one.

Guinness is the only beer I'll drink. Everything else tastes like watered-down cow piss.

Looks OK to me assuming it is a work in progress. Why not ask the owner what he has planned?

Work in progress or not, maybe it should be on the hard. Not too many "stout" 70s wood boats that rotten.

My grand uncle was a dark side remittance man from County Cork pre 1900. If he hadn't been a typical hard drinkin' scrappy Irish womanizer and a family embarrassment, I wouldn't be here.

One drink is too many for me and a thousand not enough.

I spoke briefly with the owner today and he said he had been in Campbell River for 3 months.

Pretty near stripped out with all major systems replaced or upgraded.
Hadn't decided on final configuration. Old volvo discarded, but newer JD kept.
I found the owners to be very friendly, maybe because I knew some of the
history of the boat?

I think they were just wore out and wanting to get back to Port Orchard.

Guess we will have to take your word on that. I've only had the Guinness, never thought to try the other.
