Corazon, Badger, and a couple other riff-raff budget conscious boats happily tied to the breakwater floats in Shearwater, BC.

Corazon was built from hand sawn logs on a beach in Sointula, BC.

Another of Corazon...the couple sailing her were in their sixties (maybe their seventies) and were snug as bugs in little Corazon. Must be but a mere speck off Cape Caution...

Hmmm, a very interesting color hull. He must have experienced a near miss (collision) with an inattentive boater.
I did see a charter sailboat painted international orange. The owner said, he wanted to be seen in the ocean.
IMO, both colors will increase the chances of being seen, most definitely.

I love hanging out with the riff-raff. . That big pilothouse ketch on the end looks pretty spiffy.

Your cruising grounds are stunning up there above the 49 parallel.

The double-ended Corazon with the aft-mounted rudder is a classy looking boat.

I had a beautiful little vintage Audi once. I had a beautiful girlfriend at that time as well.
They were very similar...an absolute blast when everything was working, but constantly breaking down and needing to go in for an expensive tune-up.

I'm still thinking about that Audi. I wish I could remember her name...
Great one

the avatar is my boat
she is :- 8mtrs x 2.5mtrs x 1500 kgs x 20 h.p. Yanmar

The question to eric was why he considered the cat 'dumb' as he generally explains things fully.


I just really liked the impression of stability at speed in the rough stuff and the ability to anchor and not be freaking out about tides. (I have just returned from boating in huge tides) and can tell you a story or 3.

I'm with Nomad. I get the concept but not the final product. Looks like a Star Wars enemy fighter mated with a giant staple remover.

Sorry it was a dumb word to use. But the thing dosn't look like a boat. It looks more like a bug (water slimmer) than a boat. A contraption.
OK I should admit I'm not keen on catamarans. Don't see any need for more than one hull. I see them as medicine for those paranoid about stability.
A trimaran seems to have some merit but cats have their forces and mass spread out too far and hence require a great deal of structure to keep the two hulls in place. Too much of a penalty. Just an opinion not well thought out but I don't think it's worth much effort.

Good Lord Murray, what was the call for that many boats in Shearwater? Asked as I have passed Bella Bella many times on the ferry and while it is bit away, there has never been any indication of fishing fleets of that nature or size. Trollers, yes on occasion in view, not that many gillnetters.

The "Bonnie Belle" Is that another ex-Canadian forestry or fisheries boat? Appears in design to be. Always wonderfully designed and constructed boats.

The "Corazon" was a feature in the Wooden Boat magazine years back. The folks built two or three boats from beach combed logs. Hard to do now with the timber industry not providing convenient logs, that and barging what is logged today. Heck of a story.

Thanks for the pictures, really relate to the older boats.
