Pretty Bill Garden 24' camp tender

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...9998815207477/

What a pretty handsome boat!

Bill Garden designed, Cyril Thames Built = BC wood boat royalty. This 24 foot camp tender belongs to a local Navy League. It has been a great asset to the cadets and is ready for its next adventure. Donated to the League a few years ago, boathouse kept most of its life. Is in good shape just needs a little TLC in the way of paint and some bright work touch up. Powered by a heat exchanged 350 CID / 5.7 Lt, 270HP Crusader (recently replaced exhaust rises and mixers) with a Borg Warner Velvet drive. Has (2) x 15-Gal fuel tanks, (2) x start batteries and hydraulic steering. Come with Standard Horizon 155-C GPS and I-Com IC-M302 VHF. Hull is a double skin with membrane in between.

My knee jerk reaction was to make fun of it by saying it looks like this:

But it actually looks like a much nicer and more comfy place to live than my boat...

I have seen similar boat and they are impressive and more comfy than many brick and mortar homes. For sure these are not intended for ocean crossing but to cruise on lakes and rivers.

From what I hear it's actually a reproduction of the best Viking boat design!

Viking Age (793–1066 AD)

Seems this trawler yacht had a tragic beginning as well.

I finally remembered where I had first seen Wanderbird in photos. Fairhaven Yachts page: https://www.fairhavenyachtsales.com/index.html

While trolling (trawling?) BoatTrader, spotted this: https://www.boattrader.com/boat/1993...aunch-7926979/

The possibilities aren't exactly endless, but there are a range of them.

That one more nicely fitted out than most of the ones of this type you see for sale.

Hmmmm, no engine hours, no berths. Not much of a galley. What's in the aft cabin? Yup, clean slate.

Price, not too bad.
Maybe another $15-20K and presto, an almost perfect boat.

I was thinking a little bimini over the cockpit area for times of adverse weather and convert the forward cabin to a berth. Start with a $5K budget, end up spending $15K, and it makes a nice little islander.
