Pull back the curtain

Ok, this is the first I have revealed the boat online. Due diligence has been done The hull and mechanical survey are due the 20th. I brought in a 40 year vet of surveying on a walk through (to tell me not to do it) He was blown away, he said "You have to buy this, if you don't I will and I already have too many boats." My 40 year vet boat electrician looked at detainee pics and said, "it's all professional, you'll be good." This boat found me, I had no clue I would be taking on the care off such an awesome vessel. We'll be in the Puget Sound for a while, then who knows? It has 3,000 mi range..

She's a beut. Moored near me in Everett maybe a year or so ago. Not exactly sure of the publication, maybe Northwest Yachting, did a story on her back when she was re-fit. Pretty much all new systems etc by a guy with a bottomless check book. Congrats Cap!

It had a hot tub when it was in charter service. The current owner said it was good they removed it, it was leaking.

Thanks I'd love to gather anything about her past. I was told the refit was over $700k. Everywhere I stick my head looks modern and well done... organized...:-)

2" vertical grain old growth fir, full length planks. Iron wood stem. And to think William Garden designed it with a slide rule and french curve.

Capt. Jack,

Did you say “2” fir, full length planks”?
FULL LENGTH. Of the boat?

2" thick fir yes. I have seen one plank that isn't full length, (Maybe a replacement?) you can see it in the pic. There may be more, but I haven't seen any.

Pretty lousy resolution, it's the 4th plank down under the name.

Welcome. I just retired from fishing in BC. I was on the same boat for 55 years. A troll, longline and trap freezer boat. My Dad used to anchor in Lituya Bay in the old days when we could roam the whole coast. We were a whole 12 days without a boat before we purchased an Ocean Alexander 50 Mk 1. We love it.

I look forward to BSing with you.

Gorgeous boat. My father ran a 36' troller out of Garibaldi in the mid forties before relocating to Ketchikan. I fished with him before going on tugs.

Wow, to think how far back this is now. I thought this must be a converted Siener at 58'. But it was built this way...:-)

Wow! What a grand old lady! A truly great find specially considering the TLC and $ that has been put into her. I have never fished or spent much time at sea but I have spent my whole life around heavy equipment and similar systems to what these big old boats use. I love the simplicity and reliability of these old systems which I have on my current boat. Welcome to TF and I look forward to hearing your stories from the past and future! I really like and respect what you guys do in the Bering Sea and love hear about it. Without the drama!
