I believe the Alyeska was built by an arm of Alberni Engineering called OceanHaven Yachts, but I don't thing they're around as that name any more.

I see in your next batch of photos the Souveneir is back! 'Hope they come up this way soon again.

The Steveston lifeboat was built in Pearl Harbor in 1944 and saw extensive service with the U.S. Navy. Purchased by Horton in 1988, she has been used in the volunteer search and rescue service of the Coast Guard Auxiliary and the Canadian Lifeboat Institution. She remains in excellent condition.

A common sight on the Fraser River she has offered assistance to mariners in trouble on over 650 occasions.
Hey Outmywindow, the Steveston Lifeboat is featured on the cover of the current issue of Western Mariner magazine.
Neat boat, didn't realize she was wood.
Speaking of wood, the issue features several local wood boat builders. Beautiful stuff!

You gotta love wood, it's the maintenance part that I hate.
Looks like the Steveston lifeboat won't be very active this season, as they mentioned that the Fraser River run is/will be canceled this year do to poor returns.

She's a shadow to the Maltese Falcon. It looked like the crew had a degree in "cleaning".

I don't know, but I'll ask Tom next time we're out drinking.
Speaking of Perini Navis, this one just arrived.

Peace Boat

Thanks for the pic of Peace Boat. I'm pretty sure its the Oceanic which was built by Home Lines in 1962-63 for the Genoa-New York Service. At 27 knots she was fast and had lovely lines typical for the late 50s and early 60s. Eventually she became a cruise ship under several names including being painted an ugly red as one of the so-called "Big Red Boats". In the early seventies she was still lovely inside but I have no idea what the years and various standards of upkeep have left us. Still, I was sure she had gone to the breakers so it was a surprise and a treat to see her. One of the last true ocean liners still sailing.

Unhappy Sigh

Further research indicates that the Peace Boat is indeed the Oceanic but that the round the world Peace Cruise has not been a stellar performance. She was detained in New York for various violations including a cracked hull!
Then she was detained in Vancouver for dumping fuel oil into the harbour.
Oh well - she WAS a great ship.

Taking a second look, she does look a bit tired.
It was interesting to see the tugs turn & point her out of the harbour like a laden tanker.

There is an interesting story behind the Kuulakai aside from it being one of the few remaining Miki tugs. Do you know what is happening with it now?

Now owned by CANADIAN BLACK COD FISHING CORP. the Kuulakai was once called the Lloyd B. Gore and towed logs here on the coast for years. She was built by NORTHEAST SHIPBUILDING CO. QUINCY, MASS.

Interesting bit of news from October 4, 1995 ...
This unusual case concerned whether a commercial fishing licence could be seized under the provisions of the Customs Act. The facts of the case were that the fishing vessel "Lloyd B. Gore" had been spotted by the U.S. Coast Guard returning from the South China Sea. The vessel was tracked and was ultimately seized with a cargo of marijuana. The vessel and her commercial fishing licence were subsequently declared forfeit. The vessel had a value of $85,000 and the licence had an estimated value of between $300,000 and $400,000. The Court of Appeal held, however, that the licence was not a "conveyance" under the Customs Act and was therefore not subject to forfeiture.

Sad news;
One of Kuulakai's sisters the Florence Filberg burned to the waterline on July 3 at Eliza Point, Vancouver Island. She had been beached there for quite some time after dragging her anchor in one of our 40-45 knot wind storms.

A couple of photos of the two in their glory days...

You mean… LT-293-A-W-127
But seriously no I didn’t, all I saw was an interesting boat. Doing a quick search, there is an interesting history to her and others.
Thanks for the heads-up Marmot……….small ocean.
