These may well have been sold as hull & deck kits.. but I suspect a few would have been finished by the builder. Not too sure how many were actually made, but I'd guess not more than a couple of dozen judging by how common they aren't, even around here.

You could well be right about this but considering the production span - at least 1966 to 1974 for sure, it is strange more information is not available. I cannot even find out any information about Chine Boatyards but I have heard of Derek Cove before - at least his name rings a bell.

Hello!

I am a proud owner of a 1968 Gulf Island 29, which I bought a couple of years ago (my first "big" boat!). When I bought her, the broker gave me a photo-copy of an old magazine article about the Gulf Island boats that featured Bill Wolferstan's Tumbo (an older version with a transom mounted rudder). I can't remember which magazine the article came from, maybe Pacific Yachting???. But she's a great solid boat, definitely very similar the the Alberg/Triton models. I am planning on spending this upcoming summer on her sailing down from Wrangell, AK to Puget Sound, hopefully via the "outside" inside passage. Hope to see you and 'Wrinkles' around.

Eric

Hello Eric!

Good to hear from you. I am going to try and track down the Bill Wolferstan article you mention. Is your Gulf Island custom finished? I would be interested to know. What is her name? If my plans go according to schedule I will be leaving Deep Bay around May 10th for a trip up north to explore some of the area north of Cape Caution. Depending on when you will be travelling we could well cross paths.

posting pics

Pretty east to do. Set up an online picture hosting acct, I use Photobucket.com. upload your photos. Once you've done that you can view them in an album. Move your cursor over the picture and a few lines will be highlighted. Click on the bottom one where you see [img] and it will automatically copy it. Paste that into your reply on here on its own line and there you have it.

The attachment feature here doesn't work real well.. a photo hosting site is better and I believe that lurkers (ie non members) can see the images if you go that route..
