Apollo connections in BC
I also bought a'73 Apollo 32 from the second owners who turned 85 and retired from boating. I have the electrical schematic and several other pieces including magazine articles from English and Canadian sources. Klaus Baess's brother had emigrated from Denmark to Victoria and was responsible for the purchase of a number of these boats locally. There were two of them for sale, docked nose to nose in Maple Bay at the time I bought this one.
It's unlikely that the original schematic can be relied upon at this point. I installed a Lewmar 3.5 hp bowthruster on mine - best upgrade ever. Also, the 20" high cockpit combing was awkward to climb over so I cut stepthroughs down to 5 " above the deck, faced them with teak and sewed snap-on coverings to close off rain. These boats were originally designed for the Danish coast guard on the North sea, so made to take hard seas. As one of the few pleasure boats certified by Lloyd's Registry, it came with a Lloyd's stamped metal plate and the framed, signed certification by the surveyors in Copenhagen. Does yours have its Klaus Baess emblazoned crockery that was included in its purchase? Doug
