We’re living our dream.
Nestled within the Inside Passage of British Columbia’s stunning Coastal region, we’ve just taken possession of a beautiful (to us) 45′ ferro cement hulled sailboat.

Ripped from her mooring during one of our strong storms and run aground, she encountered  the only large rock on the beach. Today, she floats.

With a temporary patch over the gouge, and tarps over her hatches, a broken rudder, missing wheelhouse, and stripped of pride, the Someday Lady is a battered boat.  Optimists and visionaries, we have peeked into her warm interior, seen the insides of her wounds, and know her most valued jewels have been kept safe, believe that together we can restore the Someday Lady’s original splendor, and make our home in her berth.

Someday Lady, THIS is our journey!!

    hey Damon

    Great stuff.
    What a project. Makes me dizzy just thinking about it.

    Michael (and I am sure) Ellen

  2. Best of luck to you in your project. Enjoy the experience.

  3. Dear Madlav & Damon, nice to read from a couple who are ferro-lovers and to see that you bring a beauty back to real pride. I’m a passionate fan of concrete hulls, and look forward for a huge project in the next year. More than 10 years of preparatory phase are now behind us, and hopefully every thing will take its course now.
    My homepage might be interesting for you in some parts. It’s all in German but have nice pictures and useful links for ferro. I like to ask you for permission to use some pictures from your reparation to integrate into my webpage. Please let me know if you agree. http://wordpress.ferrocement-ships.com/ With best regards from ship to ship. Raymond

      Thank you!! After checking out your page (and wishing I could read it) you most definitely may use our pics of the repair, with hopes it will link back to us. I appreciate your link also on your page, and have followed the other links to other beautiful boats — thank you also for that research! Thanks again for checking us out, and sharing your thoughts and dream project! Now back to looking at your page…. 🙂

  4. The work you’ve done is amazing! Like A.Mazing! We’re both very impressed. Keep up the vision. And since we share the same coast, perhaps someday we’ll meet!

  5. Thanks for your quick and friendly response. Surly I will set a link back to your side. Do have any picture from the wrack as it’s laying on the beach? Now back to work at my page…..
