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.
Mine is the S/V Erica. It is not custom finished except for one of the main cabin berths was converted into a dinette table. We are hoping to start travelling south in May sometime. Maybe we'll see you north of Cape Caution! Beautiful areas!

Thanks for your reply. For your information, I was able to get in touch with Bill Wolferstan and he was able to solve some of the mystery surrounding lack of information on the Gulf Island 29. Bill thinks that only about 6 of them were built at Chine Boat Yards in Vancouver. He does not know at what stage of production they were sold but his had an external transom hung rudder wheras all the others were internal rudders. Bill and his wife Clementian enjoyed "great sailing in Tumbo for 25 years".
My boat also has one of the cabin berths converted into a dinette and I do intend to post some pictures if I ever get the process figured out.

Paste that into your reply on here on its own line and there you have it.
I have all my pictures stored on Picasa. I just spent the weekend trying to figure out how to post them here. I put the relevant pictures in a public web album, copied the link to the album and then pasted it here in response to your message.The link appeared alright but was not clickable. All that was fairly simple to do but in spite of lots of research and many attempts I still was not successful in making it clickable. I am either missing something or I am going to have to try something other than Picasa. If I try Photobucket the problem appears to be transferring the pictures out of Picasa into Photobucket. Will keep at it.

I have a couple of the Wolferstan books, and have always liked the look of his boat with the externally hung rudder. Did he mention where Tumbo is now? If only 6 of these boats where made at Chine Boat Yards, were the rest sold as kits? I found some photos of your Wrinkles on-line and saw that it has two more windows than mine, and also a bigger engine (which I envy, I have a 13 hp Yanmar 2gm, a bit slow). Good Travels!

That was all the information Bill Wolferstan provided (by way of email). Now here is a stupid question, how did you find the Wrinkles pictures on line? I have not been able to find them on line and had no indication that they had actually been posted anywhere.

I found them at

Island Marine Centre - Sailboats

She's listed as a Cove 29.

Sure enough, that's my Wrinkles. I am buying her privately and obviously the guy I am buying her from has had her listed at some stage (not now) with islandyachtsales.ca

Re: 29 Gulf Island Sloop

Ressurecting an older thread.

Just curious about how similar your Gulf Islander 29 is to the Alberg 30 you used to have? I'm considering one as well. How do the two compare? The G Islander 29 also looks similar to the Islander 29. Where you ever able to find more info?

Hope your enjoying your summer sailing wrinkles.
