Adagio


Pacific Northwest Richardson 1948
34'

The Richardson Boat company built wooden boats in North Tonawada N.Y. on the Erie Canal from 1909 to 1962. "Sail Aways" from the plant were offered in the 20's and 30's. (youtube: 1935 Richardson Sail Away) Traditional construction continued until WW II when military boats were built with plywood. Post-war it was tried on pleasure boats, and Adagio is a 1948 example of the new method. She first had Chrysler Crusaders, and was re-powered with twin 140 HP Gray's in 1965.  Cruising the Salish Sea all her life has ensured she is one of the few remaining examples from the 1940's. Current owners for five years have focused on functional refinements of her utilitarian origins and classic form. [BH16]

Adelante


Canadian Grandy Boat Company 1929
42'

Adelante was built in 1929 by the Grandy Boat Company of Seattle, WA. After war service at the Ballard locks she found her way to Alaska where she served as a bridge tug in construction of the Alaska Highway.

She was a pleasure craft  on the Tagish Lake system in the Yukon 1964-1967. She eventually made her way to Vernon where she served as a pleasure craft until 1974. 

After a significant rebuild by Sarama and Lyonoor Lardein she was re-launched at Shelter Bay Marina on Lake Okanagan in May 1988.

Adventure


Pacific Northwest Grandy 1947

In the 1960’s the boat was used by Don McCune, "Captain Puget", in the Seattle travel TV Show ”Expedition Norwest”. (For more about Don McCune, see http://www.historylink.org/index.cfm?DisplayPage=output.cfm&file_id=3468)

Alondra


Canadian David Edward 1941
36'

By Dave & Patricia Cook, owners

The motor vessel Alondra was buiilt in 1940 but was not launched until the following year, 1941. This delay was the result of the Second World War, which caused certain items to be rationed and slowed the final completion of the boat.

She was designed and constructed by David E. "Ted" Cook and his son Edward, who was my father. Ted Cook was a master shipwright who spent the second quarter of the 20th century in various shipyards in the Vancouver Coal Harbour area.

Althea

Blanche


Southern California Leigh Coolidge
Blanchard Boat Co.
1928
36'

The Blanchard 36 foot stock cruiser, Blanche, was originally Blue Boy, commissioned in 1928 in Seattle.
Twenty-five of these Leigh Coolidge designed Blanchard stock cruisers were built between 1924 and 1930 and, of those, only a few were configured with the enclosed aft cabin. As Blue Boy, she returned to the Blanchard yard shortly after she was launched to have her enclosed aft cabin modified slightly, creating a stepped cabin top which is unique among these boats.  Norm Blanchard has a recollection of this modification being done, but cannot remember why the owner wanted it. CYA member Steve Wilen (Kensington) is a previous owner of the boat and he helped Norm Blanchard compile the written history of Blanchard Boat Company, Knee Deep in Shavings. Steve was helpful in giving some details of the boat’s history.

Holiday has been family owned since launched in July 1946. My Grandfather Rex Bartlett commissioned Ed Monk Sr. to design her and was built on Lake Union by the Edison Technical School. Jim Chambers who ran the school along with Earl Wakefield and Vic Franck also worked on building her. I grew up on the boat and later helped "Gramps" maintain her, taking ownership in 1985. We are very proud of the fact Holiday has been maintained all these years and not restored. Of course mechanical repairs and replacements have been made due to normal wear and tear.
