My little sailboat Madsu remains tucked away under a tarp next to my house for the winter.
I still can’t resist cruising the docks, looking at boats – a prairie boy who’s turned sea crazed.
This 198 foot beauty is called Méduse, and she was (and may still be) owned by Paul Allen, one of the founders of Microsoft and a fairly regular visitor to these parts. She was hanging out at Lonsdale Quay when I was there on Monday (Feb 1).
I wonder if she’s here is here for the Olympics ?
That’s a lot of hull to keep sparkly clean.
UPDATE: A friend on Twitter tells me she’s now owned by the Washington family – they’re the people who own Cates tugs of North Vancouver – and the owners of these docks…so that makes some sense.
