Good to see her go to a great home. You never really ever own a classic boat, car etc you are more it's custodian to care and feed it.

Finally Home

She is finally home. I find out buying a boat is easier than taking possession. The PO passed away about 4 years ago so I was dealing with the estate. Then we find out the
x-wife was still on the ownership (pink slip). Then rescheduling the truck to haul it needed about a month. It left Ventura West Marina this last Tuesday (14th) for the 7 hour trip to the ranch. It hauled great without a scratch. Now every morning I wake up to a sun rise over her. This boat has a long history and I have many boxes of photos and records. (Stephens Bros, #594) It was stored with complete canvas except for the aft cockpit( I found that in the dingy) Oh the dingy turned out be an all teak sailing/rowing dingy that is in perfect shape. This boat was loaded with boxes of stuff that I'm just beginning to discover.

Thanks for the update. I'm glad she is finally home. Looking forward to updates and hope to see her, and you folks, on the water.

That's sweet! Welcome to the neighborhood!!

Have you made any progress on your backyard pond to float her while you work on her? Would love to come by and see her in person in Lodi someday.

Looks like some vines behind the boat in the last picture of post 22.

Barqueiro means Boatman in Portuguese if I'm not mistaken.

Marty,

Finding wine in CA is a bit like finding water in FL, just about anywhere you look.
If they could sell it from carts on the street like ice cream and strawberrys they would.

The Ranch
Yes that is a vineyard behind the Stephens. It's part of the St Jorge Winery that I started in 2009. Wine and wine making has been part of my life from a very early age.
All TF members are invited here for a special (free) wine tasting, barrel tasting and tours. Along with your glass of wine you can tour the Stephens during restoration.
The PO planned to live aboard and installed all the electrical. My goal is to restore it as close to original and remove a lot of PO stuff. The Stephens was re-powered with twin Volvo diesels in 2009. It just needs a good going through and clean up.

I'm in. Al, Ray, Mark, CP, sounds like a Delta Cruisers outing potential.
Good time and place to model our new TF Fashions.

You are doing an awesome thing keeping that beautiful boat alive and well. I have seen too many get scrapped here because some owner decided it was too much work keeping a woodie going.

The wine invite sounds interesting. I used to make wine as a hobby and made hundreds of gallons over the years.

Classic Yacht Association - Home Classique Yacht association, Good recource. Try and keep her as wet as possible, burlap stapled to the bottom with sprinklers or soaker hoses will save you a lot of time and money in caulking later. letting her dry out will add tons of time. A couple of weeks in this climate is a lot.
