The Tancook Whaler, Yara
Kent Wheeler, Nov. 2007
Two and one half years ago (July 2005), I traded a Thunderbird sailboat which I had restored, for Yara. (formerly known as Mara.)
I have been enjoying restoring Yara since then. I had a single cylinder Volvo Penta MD5A motor rebuilt which I installed this last summer. Pictures below detail the bottom painting that was recently completed. Additionally you will see Yara's sidekick -- the electric orange canoe.
She is now a certified "live aboard" at Woodley Island Marina on Humboldt Bay in Eureka, California.
The final photos on this page are of some of the several previous boats I have owned.
