DULCINEA


Runabout DULCINEA

Relaunched after nearly 30 years. The boat has been refinished, the engine has been thoroughly serviced and a fuel pump added. What a sweet little boat, they just don't build them like this anymore. The hull is molded birch and as sound as new. Dulcinea started life in Vancouver BC in 1956, made her way to New York then came home to the west coast. Seen here at Rocky Point, Port Moody.

This looks exactly like a boat I owned back in the early eighties! It was a 1956 12' Paceship, made in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. The similarities in the details are incredible, from the Johnson 35hp Seahorse, to the cut out cockpits, the location of the fire extinguisher, steering wheel etc.
Brought back many memories.
