Glad to see the enthusiastic welcome for Captain Josh the group gave. I encouraged him to join under his own name as he has some wonderful tales to tell, adventures, and photos to share. The bridge is shining for the new season after some weeks of work for new ceiling panels.


Josh and I are working on a slow transfer of care for this eternal trawler into his qualified hands. She is looking the best she has been in the last 15 years due to the care of Captain Josh and Captain Emily. No one owns a wooden boat, you just take care of it for the next generation. I want more time to work on the history of the Malahides and Romsdals as I excavate my archives of historical documents. I asked Josh will share some of the insights we have on this classic trawler yacht as we continue to modernize without destroying her heritage and working to share her with others. Thanks for the heads up (all puns intended) from Peggy our Headmistress of the forum. We now have two new modern heads and less poop prone adventures since her trip with us and survey and advice years ago. All is as well as it can be marine sanitation wise on the Ursa these days.


Ursa Major and her caretakers have three mission goals:


1. Preserve a classic boat for the future
2. Maximum fun for maximum number of people while doing it
3. Let's not make the owner go broke.


Josh has some wonderful drone aerial shots of our visit in Alaska last year showing marinas and anchorages posted on YouTube and I will post the link for the entertainment of the group.


I have to get back and answer a few threads that had Romsdal and Malahide questions from the past that I missed. I have been too busy taking care of arthritis patients these last few years. Watch for some more historical info on these boats and where they are now.

For your immediate enjoyment: aerial video of Wrangell, Petersburg harbors in Alaska and some anchorages plus view of Ursa Major underway and at anchorage via drone camera, visit YouTube and search for Ursa Major Charters and you will get some fantastic shots of video. There is a 100 years of cruising in SE Alaska alone.

Correct Clear View. It is a very balanced spinning glass insert that spins off water by centrifugal force so ice will not form and one can see out in rain well. Common on commercial type boats going into cold. No wipers and reverse racked window for visibility. Continues working well after 45 years and we hope many more. We can post more detail image if desired.

We just rebuilt this one 2 years ago. It is remarkable in its simplicity and durability. The motor (24v) actually mounts to the glass using 2 Irish Wool Gaskets and a bronze ring to tighten everything. This is the most effective windshield wiper...
