Introduction time?

Hi from Campbell River BC
I have been here (background mostly) for a while.
Left the intro until plans gelled (boat acquired, house sold
in reverse order).
Boat was never a trawler but is slow, so??
Hope the avatar worked.
Ted


Hooray it did!

It will do 8-9 but for economy, 7-7 1/2 @ 850 to 900 rpm.

Welcome aboard Ted. Since you've been around a while you already know not to use the words "anchor" or "gun" on this forum. Either word will start a never ending thread.

Yes. Fair warning. I'll try to be careful of my language.

Welcome Ted,

Your boat appears to be a retired Fisheries patrol vessel. If so what was/is her name? They're great boats.

The boat is named "Okisollo"
She was built in 1944 as a combat vessel for the Canadian navy.
After the war she became a towboat for two different companies.
The owner of the latter comp any put her into the shipyard for two
years to refit her for pleasure, kept her for approx. 35 years. The next owner got her about 2001, did a lot of refit upgrades, kept her until Monday 11th when my wife
(Dorothy) and I bought her. Now we'll see.

Strictly in my opinion, and based solely on my personal sense of maritime aesthetics, that is the best looking boat on TrawlerForum by a long, long shot. Thank you for keeping her alive and well.

Thank you Marin
Your opinion and Eric's (in another thread) are high praise indeed, BUT we are
just starting our stewardship.
The help on TrawlerForum is going to be invaluable

What a great hull and beautiful lines, Ted and Dorothy!! She looks like she's built like a battle tank. Would love to see more shots when you get the chance. Engine room and interior hull? Saloon, stateroom, etc. She has obviously been well loved and cared for.

How great it must be to own such a unique and graceful vessel! Congrats!
