Gaffer, with fugly boxy cabin trunk anchored in False Creek between Heather and Spruce.

Anyone know anything 'bout its pedigree?

Hey, why ain't there a classic boat forum here?

As an aside, just found this youtube vid of Carlotta. Had a roommate in late '80s who was dating the owner who, I think I got this right, brought her (Carlotta) up from the Caribbean in the '70s(?)



Notes says she's being/been refit here in BC.

Post a pic!

I'm pretty sure it was Carlotta we were rafted to, 3-4 days in Powell River, 6-7 years ago. Hatches were propped and lights were on, but we never saw anybody. Someone said she was built 1900-ish.

The ancient one with crab traps and crap all over the deck?
Usually by the big sailboat with no mast, the one that doesn't get kicked out of False Creek like everyone else?
If it's the same one, nice owner, older guy, usually rows to and from under Monks I think. Not too talkative, but friendly. I'd like to know more about his boat too.
