My name is Magali and I took the challenge to refit a beautiful Pacific north west wooden troller, a staple of the Canadian coast’s nautical history.
The Traveller was built in 1966 by Remmem boat works in Annieville, the first or second of ten sisters. Remmem boats have the reputation to be a true West coast style, and built very skookum, like we say on the coast.
I took the project out of pure passion and desire to restore this beautiful ship, and many asked how to help, which lead me to accept donations to help cover some of the costs.
She has come a long way since we hauled out last januray. Both port and starboard have had about 80 frames either replaced or sistered, and all new planking to seal it all. The cabin roof was completely redone with new wood and sealed with fiber cloth and epoxy. The Gardner engine had it’s fuel pumps rebuilt and I gutted the old electronics out and renovated the entire galley. The fish hold has also been gutted out to allow the major hull refit to happen.
Taking the engine out, rebuild it. Reafing and recaulking everywhere under the waterline and where planks were changed , refasten the old planks, rewire entirely, install new electronics, prime/paint everywhere.
I appreciate your time if you made it this far into the description, and whatever you decide to do, even 1$ will put a smile on my face and encourage me to continue this amazing project!
