Viking Magic

Looking very Canadian but registered in the US as a pleasure boat with builder unknown and year built left blank. In Canada a boat with the same name was built in 1979 in Delta, BC and came off the register in 1999. Anyone know the story? The Canadian boat belonged to Seppo Makkonen in 1992.

    Had many a great time with the guys partying on the Viking Magic! The sons, Jaakko and Rob were great guys. Jakob got into abit of trouble and his dad was getting older so I believe the boat was sold. Would live to hear from Jaakko and Rob again and hear how they are doing so if anyone knows them please pass on the email greengummybair@gmail.com.
    Thanks

    Viking Magic was owned and operated by Seppo Makkonen, and his two sons Jaakko and Robert, until health issues forced him into retirement in the late 1990’s. The boat was eventually sold to an American buyer. Seppo fished with the boat mainly out of Ucluelet, chasing coho off the “big bank”, and back in the day made decent hauls of sockeye at Esperanza Inlet. The Viking Magic and it’s family were fairly well known to the residents of Ucluelet at one time.

    Well, my dad (Bob Wulff) and I built this boat at Ernie Wahl’s boat shop at Gunderson Slough in Delta, BC – launched in 1979 and my Grandmother Nellie christened it . It was originally used as a gillnetter and troller. My dad and I fished this boat from 79-82 up and down the coast of British Columbia. We’d start out in Barkley Sound and up by Prince Rupert in June. We’d make it down to Rivers/Smith Inlet in July and back down to the Fraser River for the 2nd week of August. My dad sold the boat in 1982-1983 and I miss it a lot :)
