    The latest 135 was launched in the last few days. She looks to be the same color scheme as her big sister "Clifford II", being mostly white with a deep purple accent. Unfortunately I couldn't get the name as the aft garage was open. Maybe someone else can help out with that?

    Are you sure that the yacht you are seeing isn't the 135 that was on display by PJ at the 2009 Miami Boat Show? Heston has a few shots of her and she has a similar colour scheme to "Clifford II".

    Hi,

    Ron- The two boats in your last two posts are different vessels.

    Check out the Portholes on the Stbd Side as a comparison.

    LOL, K!W!, I know that! I am simply saying to Coismov that the 135-footer that he was refering to might be the one that was on display at the Miami Boat Show and not necessarily a brand new one. He was saying it had similar colour styling to "Clifford II". So I showed the 2 pics for comparison.

    No, it's definitely a new launch. The 135 in Miami was 'Plus Too' which has a dark blue or almost black flybridge. This one is definitely the same purple color as 'Clifford II'. Apparently 'Plus Too' was headed to Europe shortly the Miami show.

    Ahh, that explains why PJ had the name covered up on the stern with their "PJ 135" sign. So does anyone then have any photos of the brand new 135, which would be the 4th unit in the series?

    I have one photo, but it's not the best quality. I"ll hold off on posting it for a little while I try to get a better shot. Hopefully she hasn't left Sturgeon Bay yet.

    It's the new "Cover Drive 2". Just received pics of her passage through the Welland Canal by YF member 'Rodger'...

    As it clearly says Kingstown on the stern, I would hazard a guess that is the port of registry. They aren't flying a St Vincent and the Grenadines Flag at the stern though.

    No suggestion as to why they would be flying a Canadian Flag on the Stbd side unless it is related to the Owner in some way.

    My guess is that the vessel is not delivered as yet so it still is flying the US flag as PJ is located in the US. Once delivered the Vincentian flag will be put there. As for the Canadian Flag...where is the Welland Canal? In canada? This is not the first time I have seen those PJ boats that were not delivered as yet fly the canadian flag in the canal. See "Four Jacks" when she was going up the canal in one of the other posts.

    Here is the Link...I thought that it was the same canal but it was a different one, anyways you can see she was flying the US flag at the stern too.

    Travelling through the Welland Canal it would be in Canadian waters wouldn't it?

    Welland Canal

    The Welland Canal is one of those man made wonders that allows ships to bypass the trip over that natural wonder called Niagara Falls. It is in Ontario, Canada, and connects Lake Erie to Lake Ontario. From there ships are free to exit the lake at its eastern end and transit the St. Lawrence to the Atlantic.

    As an aside, it's also the site of one of the more famous "ship accident" videos on Youtube.
