Newbie - Any Maple Bay owners out there?
 
Just joined, we have a Maple Bay 33 "Anna Melvin 111" which we are slowly bringing home to Toronto. Set out from St. Petersburg, Fla. in January 2012 now laid up for the winter on the Chesapeake, having crossed over to the east coast ICW via Lake Okeechobee. Wonderful boat, wonderful trip.

Looks like it will roll just like the Anna Melvin too!

Always been a fan of the Maple Bay vessels from the first 27 that Dallas Selman built.
Any idea how many 32's Jim Scrivens built?
Beautiful boat!

Hi Conrad: I believe she is actually a "33" and registration papers variously say built 2002 and 2003. Have searched for more information but not much out there, although I did see and advert for what seemed to be another 33. Apparently she has been to Alaska then down to and through the Panama Canal before finding a home in North Carolina for a few years. We are probably the third owners and she is in great shape.

Somewhere I have an old copy of Pacific Yachting that has an article on the Maple Bay. If I come across it you are welcome to a scanned copy of the review. They quite liked it.

Well then, it would be a good looking boat.:thumb:

Welcome and if it does look like Conrad's pic, a mighty fine looking boat!

Mereman 10-07-2014 09:53 AM

That's the other "33" I had seen. This version was called a Pacific Isle 33 which seems to fit with Dallas Selman connection. Copy of the Pacific Yachting article would be much appreciated. Thanks to all for the compliments, will now try to upload more pictures.

Yours is different? You're correct that the one in the photo was called a Pacific Isle sometimes and a Maple Bay other times. Now I'm intrigued by what model you have. Attached is the spec sheet for the Pacific Maple Isle Bay 32.

Thanks Conrad, the plan looks identical. We bought her as a Pacific Isle 33 and then found the manufacturer's label identifying Maple Bay. Looks like the mould was extended over the years from the original 27. I read on an advert for "Caprice" a 30 for sale in Vancouver that Jim Scrivens was a stickler for detail and only built 3 boats a year, so seems we lucked out big time! We laid up at Hinckley Yachts in Savannah 2013-14 and had them modify the aft cabin berth. We felt extremely smug when their carpenter came on board and said "Wow, look at all this woodwork! Praise indeed. Still trying to upload more photos but my Mac is not being co-operative.

PS: we saw "Caprice" at Coal Island, Vancouver this June; looked great. The ad is on Boating accessories, equipment, supplies, marinas and much more!

Did you stay at St Pete Muni a few years ago? I saw a MB there on the north dock.

Nomad Willy 10-07-2014 04:43 PM

Wonderful looking boat.

Almost bought a MB 27 and saw one at Pt Baker AK out of Juneau.

The 33 looks a bit like a stretched W30 wa different sheer line.

Great looking vessel! And much prefered to the one in my photo, which was laden with teak on the outside - rails, doors, cockpit floor etc. Nice but major upkeep. I've also seen a photo of one with a dark hull, so there are a few out there. Any interior photos? Still haven't located the PY article, but it is around here somewhere!

I meant to ask, how do you like the dry exhaust? And what is the windlass?

Billylll 10-07-2014 05:03 PM

Another fantastic looking boat. I prefer the looks of almost any trawler without an upper helm this is a great example.

That was us. We had a great New Year 2012 at St Pete's Municipal Marina, great crowd of people there. Enjoyed a few evenings at the Moon Under Water too!

:smitten:Original photos with interior.

The drystack exhaust works well unless the heat exchanger becomes fouled. We had arranged for a diver to clean while tied up at a marina for three months. Unfortunately he "forgot" with the result that we had to run with the engine hatch open and the heater running in 30C weather!:mad: Fortunately all back to normal now.
