Ocean Star built Matsumoto at Dollarton in 1955.
Wow haven’t seen this old girl I years of course I remember her without the aluminum dodger. Dick sim used to own her . My dad Gordon Brown was the engineer on her for years. Good to see she’s still working.
The Ocean Star suffered a tragic incident when she capsized in heavy weather off of Cape Mudge, January 29, 1966 with the loss of five crewmembers all from Sointula, B.C.
If this is the same Ocean Star..my grandfather fished this boat and unfortunately was one of the 7 men who lost their lives when it capsized in January of 1966 in the Georgia Straight.
