I’m hoping today is a wet, rainy day – why? todays story on the restoration of the 67’ Canadian motor yacht – Fifer, is such a great read.
Fifer was built in 1928 by the Hoffa- Beeching Shipyard in Vancouver BC, the company went on to merge with the Boeing Company in 1929.
Her owners are passionate woody boaters with a long history of classic wooden boat ownership. She is powered by twin 102hp Gardener 6L3, which are over 40 years old & still going strong.
The owners & Fife’s story is told on their weblog – link below. You will see from some of the photos above she has had a few ‘adventures’ – read her story it’s very addictive reading – Enjoy.
