I knew the boat when it was out of Powell River. Now out of Campbell River.

Converted Troller: Wanderer No 2 Victoria City, Victoria

Built in Lund, sunk in Lund sixty eight years later. Almost poetic.

I remember seeing it when it was for sale on line. Nice looking old boat. Pretty embarrassing.

What a shame. Saw the news on facebook.
I was very tempted to go see it when it was for sale in Brentwood but never did. Probably fortunate because I'm a suckered for old wooden boats.

Hope they throw the book at him, then the desk, then drop a dumpster on him

What a jerk. But I have to wonder what he was drunk on? How could he afford it with the high price of liquor in Canada!!!
