Pender Harbour days,July 10,11,12.

Here we have had all this warm weather, sun every day, and wouldn’t you know it, on Pender Harbour days it rained!!!!
It did not stop people from being enthusiastic and being there!
There were displays of wooden boats, beautiful kayaks, row boats, but out in the harbour was a ship that drew us to her, SV GAIA, a gaff rigged ketch,60′ long, 18′ beam, and she draws 8′.
She was built in 1921 in Sweden, and used to be an engine less fishing trawler.
her first engine was a 10, yes 10!! hp diesel installed in 1939.
At that time she was a Norwegian registered vessel.
She now belongs to Bob and Nancy Ingersoll.
We were so lucky that Bob gave us the full tour of the boat, i love going into older wooden boats, and i was fortunate enough to take some photos.
Here she is……

Here she is, moored in Madeira Park,SV GAIA.
