Fall 2011 Issue: Featured Boat

The two 'rotating' boat pics above are from past BYB issues.

1928 Ex-RCMP PATROL BOAT 50'

POSSIBLY FREE: 1928 Ex-RCMP PATROL BOAT 50'

Some years ago we decided to experience the ownership of an old wooden trawler. We found a fun one in Vancouver B.C. She had not left dock under her own power for a dozen years. But she had a good story - a 1928 ex-RCMP rum runner chaser patrol boat, converted to a cruising trawler in the 50's. Our proposal is to "sell" the boat for an arranged price, which may be very low, possibly zero. We would leave the boat in complete working order with all essential gear. [30+ photos] <PICS+INFO>

1949 CENTURY SEAMAID 17' -- MIRAGE

1949 Gray Marine Fireball 135hp inboard, two carburetors. Tandem trailer. "I bought it about 22 years ago, and it has remained in storage for the last 18 years or so. I have hand turned the engine every year and poured oil down each spark plug opening..."  [7 photos]  <PICS+INFO>


1914 Wianno Senior TIRZA

1914 WIANNO SENIOR 25' -- TIRZA #7

Don't get your hopes up. Some lucky sailor has just scooped up this 100-year old classic gaff-rigged sloop.  Owner says, "Designed & built by H. Manley Crosby at Osterville MA on Cape Cod in 1914, TIRZA is the oldest survivor of the original fleet. #7 has considerable historic significance, and she is in surprisingly good shape for her age. She needs only a modest amount of work, mostly cosmetic, to be back sailing, and with a little effort...  <PICS+INFO>

1928 WOODEN TUGBOAT 46'

1928 EVERETT MARINE WAYS 46' TUG

This 46' wooden tugboat built in 1928 by EVERETT MARINE WAYS in Everett, WA.  Powered by a 250hp Cummins 855 diesel that they say burns just 3-4 gallons per hour.  There's a pretty sweet little pilothouse amidships and a hydraulic winch on her foredeck...  [43 photos]  <PICS+INFO>

UPDATE 4/3/2014: Owner says, "I have one week to move it from where it's at and have nowhere to take her. I will give it away to someone who will continue with it. If someone can contact me in the next 2 days expressing interest, I will give them the boat if they plan on keeping her going in the right direction. They will have to arrange transportation for it.

1929 STEPHENS BROTHERS 61' -- VIDA MIA

UPDATE:  Abandoned in Hawaii in 2009, VIDA MIA was the subject of a September BYB Email Alert and appeared in the Fall 2013 issue. BYB received word on December 9th from the Harbor Manager at Kewalo Basin Harbor that Christmas came early for someone this year:

"Hi David, the VIDA MIA has been transferred to a new owner and is now at the dry dock at Keehi Marine Center. The new owners are beginning the restoration process and we wish them the best of luck and hope they are successful in their efforts to save the VIDA MIA. I would like to thank you for your efforts in getting the information about VIDA MIA out to the wooden boat lovers of the world. Bone Yard Boats was instrumental in locating a new owner for VIDA MIA. Thank you again!"
