    My great Grandfather owned this boat in the 50’s and 60’s and fished halibut in the Bering Strait with her. My father went out with him in the 60’s. Took my daughter to Steveston today and was thrilled to see her still here and still fishing.

    Hi Rick

    My grandfather was the owner from 1987-this year when he finally retired! He had me randomly search “VELMA C” and this reply popped up.

    We are all connected.

    My father John purchased this vessel sometime in the 60’s. He fished halibut and trolled salmon at the time and she was moored in Tofino. Later sold in the 70’s for the Jolly Roger.
    Thanks for posting the picture and it’s great to see her looking well maintained.
