  1. To Commodoresboats; so surprised to see these pictures of the restoration of the 36′ Ketch. That was my parents boat, that I watched growing up in our back yard, for many years. All the joy and love that went into its creation ,from my Father’s dream and vision,my Mother’s love of woodworking and enjoyment of working side by side with her husband , for me for the pleasure and appreciation of all the patience, attention to detail and the flow of allowing it all to come together with a perfect timing. And I’m sure my Sister, who was also around the making of this beauty and was fortunate to sail on it with them, could add many more wonderful memories of ‘Her’ journey from scratch , to finish. The love and enjoyment rippled out through the neighbourhood over the years.
    This is so great to the boat being cared for and restored to ‘Her’ original beauty!
    Thank you so much
    My cousin came across the pictures , sent it to my sister, who has now sent them to me.Wow! Thanks for doing a great job!

    1. Hi Lisa and Rick
      I just noticed these comments. The Wind Ketcher has been out the water for a bit of a redo again. New through hulls, replacement of some planks, engine room blowers, masts unstepped, replaced some rotten planks and a new Betamarine engine as the old Chinese Hupeh engine was becoming difficult to maintain. Brightwork as all been touched up again and ready for summer. After relaunch she was waiting at the dock when she was rammed by another boat and had to come out again for repairs but will likely be done by the end of next week.
      I was so fortunate to meet Sandy and we had a few visits together – good memories.
      I would be happy to connect with whoever would like to and listen to your stories about Steve, Sandy and the journey.
      Steven (owner)
