Free Canadian west coast tugboat!!!
« on: November 26, 2009, 21:52:55 »
Hey, check this out...

This is the Swan, built in 1888, previously owned by Alf Talbot. I think she's still in the Gibsons, BC area.
She's got to be one of the oldest surviving wooden hulled tug in the world?
What an opportunity (for someone with deep pockets).

You don't even have to buy it!
Will you be selling your Camaro now?

Hey Mike - that would look great in Maple Bay!

Interesting to see where it does retire to.

Hi Brian:

I sent them an email, as I know someone who could be interested...and they replied with a phone #.

I let the interested party know, but have heard nothing back.

...Cheers...
