That's really too bad. I would have thought someone would have bought it by now. Looking at his album on CF, it was a really nice looking boat.

Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

Always very sad when another wood boat is left to shrink, rot and die on land. It is so much work to rescue a dried out old boat and there are so few people who even know how to use a caulking iron that it's usually curtains.

Here's a Bok song that I always think of when another old wood boat goes away:

Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

I still get very sad when I think of David and the tough hands that life dealt him. If I remember right, David (Wolfenzee) had family. He was trying to get the boat fit out to sail down to Panama to be with his brother. It did not sound like the brother would be interested in 'Matilda'. Its very hard on an old wooden boat to sit on land that long, and it may be that the old girl never sees the water again. The City would be better served giving her away for near free, rather than trying to sell her for storage fees, and only end up paying the labor to dispose of her a few years hence.

Wolfenzee's boat is still in the impound area! or appears to be. I hope it is not his boat, someone is going to have to pay a lot of money to PT to get it out at somepoint in time......

Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

With reference to Utowana 1902. I used to visit and stay on this boat when she came into Millbay, Plymouth, UK. She was brought down from Norway by a Spaniard who converted her back from a hospital boat with added superstructure, to her original form. My father supplied the new spars from Cornish woodlands. On completion she sailed to southern Spain, this would have been about 1979/ 1980. Would love to know where she is now, lots of stories attached !

Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

I seem to have found Davids boat, for better or worst, is seems to be in what I would call the impound area of the marina. so I could not get too close to her to see what shape she is in, be it good or bad.

If the person that was posting with info earlier sees this, and can respond, or someone that posts at CF, maybe they can get info from that angle too.

Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

Was up there today, as I was heading out of town in the west part of the marina, I think I saw david;s boat. Looks a bit worst for wear vs the pics in his blog etc. I'll look again next week now that I think I know where it is.

Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

It took me until friday evening to figure out how to get a pic of the boat. I do not recall seeing a boat like that at the dock on wed or friday up in PT. May take some binocs with me wed if I am up that way again, if not friday. Seem to be making one to two trips a week lately.
