I took some photos of this beautiful vessel back in April 2010, when I went to Anacortes WA to see her in person. She was for sale. In retrospect I should have purchased her, but I wasn’t quite ready at the time. This was when she was a US documented vessel (1072383), and before she was sold and renamed.

The Nauticapedia states that she was built as the Beaver Rock in 1961 by the Bel–Aire Shipyards Ltd. in North Vancouver BC. She was 46.8’ x 14’ x 5.4’ with a wooden hull (yellow cedar on bent oak) 31gt 21rt. She was powered by a 220hp GMC/Detroit 8V-71 engine. When she was declared surplus to requirements in 1997 she was renamed as the 1997–14. She was renamed as Beaver Rock and then sold into US ownership and re–registered in the USA (1072383)as the Tlingit Princes.

In 1971–1998 she was owned by The Minister of Fisheries, Ottawa ON. In 1999–2004 she was owned by Stanley J. Kurowski. In 2005–2018 she was owned by Earl W. Soule, Ilwaco WA USA.
