Re: Let's see some CS Yachts

Copied from sailboatdata.com -

CS Yachts (Canadian Sailcraft) - 1963-1992
Founded by Paul Tennyson who began building the CORNICE dinghy as part of his reinforced plastics business. In 1971 CS dropped dinghy production and began building keelboats under a new name, CS Yachts. In its best year, 1986, CS built 175 30s, 33s, and 36s and the company moved to an expanded 100,000 sq. ft. facility the following year.
By 1990 the company began to wind down it's production due to the diminishing demand for new boats and closed in 1992.
CS Yachts models included the CS 22, designed by John Butler. Raymond Wall, the former chief designer for Camper Nicholson, was CSís chief designer from 1977 to 1983. His CS 27 was followed by the 36, and finally the 33. Tony Castro then took over the duties and drew the CS 36 Merlin, and eventually produced five others, the 30, 44, 40 and finally the 34.

Re: Let's see some CS Yachts

Thanks for the chronological and other corrections....

Incidentally, when Ray Wall retired/left CS and moved to BC he designed another lovely boat, the Quanta 28. Not sure how many were built, it was barely before the whole late 80s wind-down of the industry, but she kept the pedigree.. I remember thinking how beautifully tooled the moldings were when we saw the first one at a local boatshow.

Re: Let's see some CS Yachts

Hey Kool,
We went yesterday, (Sunday), and cracked a cold pint on board to celebrate 1 year of ownership/boating.
There were quite a few fellow enthusiasts in the yard, milling about, sharing news and brews...a perfect day for it.

I didn't pick this message up til now, so I'll look for Ska'ana when we stop in this weekend.
Ska'ana....pretty name...translation?

Re: Let's see some CS Yachts

Damn HB, we missed you. We went Saturday and opted for sunning in the backyard yesterday. Congrats on 1st year anniversary. Special indeed.

Ska'ana is the Haida word for the killer whale or orca. In Haidan myth the orca is a very powerful spirit. Orca has always fascinated me and the biggest thrill of my lifetime was to be in a 26ft RIB in the Strait of Juan de Fuca when we were surrounded by a pod of killers whales. The RIB felt like a dingy when the dominant male in the pod surfaced a few feet away. Saw the whites of his eyes. A magical moment.

When we acquired her she had the most dreadful name that wasn't at all dignified. Ska'ana seemed only fitting and so we changed her name upon purchase. The fact that she is blue and when hoisted in the air in the travel-lift (something that makes me cringe every time I see it) she looks like a whale to me. So Ska'ana it is.

Thanks for asking BTW.

Talking Re: Let's see some CS Yachts

A good, solid and strong name.
Worthy.

We inherited the name Grand Illusion when we purchased her.
While the immediate thought goes back to that song by Styx, I like to think otherwise.

Websters' offers that grand suggests something that is big, lavish, sumptuous, or wonderful...

According to Wiki, (and we all know how accurate that is), and illusion is a distortion of reality.
"The term illusion refers to a specific form of sensory distortion. Unlike a hallucination, which is a distortion in the absence of a stimulus, an illusion describes a misinterpretation of a true sensation. For example, hearing voices regardless of the environment would be a hallucination, whereas hearing voices in the sound of running water (or other auditory source) would be an illusion."

So, our boat is really a big, wonderul distortion of the senses...
I'll go with that.

Also, to rename her, there is this whole sacrifice the virgin on the bow thing, and where'd we find one of those????
