Adopt a Patrol Boat!

Black Raven II is a 1931 Canadian Fisheries Patrol Boat. She was built by the Walkem’s Ship Yard on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. In 1961 She went into private service and was converted to a yacht. These days you would call her a yacht in need of restoration. Despite this fact, she is a fully operational vessel that is ready for someone to take her to the next level.

In 2016 she had a major haul out that included, seam corking, plank replacement and painting top to bottom. She is due for another haul out to replace a few more planks and freshen up the paint.
