NewsBrief: [New Boat] Visitors to the Hutton House on Vancouver Island will be happy to note that the Kimler's have purchase a new, sea-worthy yacht. A 19-foot Bayliner Cuddy Classic, the 135HP boat will serve as transportation to the floating cabin.
Hutton House - Reporters learned that yesterday, the Randsco group had acquired their new corporate flagship yacht, which they promptly dubbed, "SS Randsco".
The yacht is actually a 19.5-foot Bayliner "Classic" power boat. It has a cuddy which, in nautical terms, is a small cabin in the bow. It also has a canvas top (in need of some repair), an awesome GPS unit, mounts for two down-riggers, a 135HP, 4-cylinder I/O motor and a galvanized trailer.
The yacht easily seats six passengers and has power to get up on plane quickly. It's small enough to easily tow on the road and big enough to offer overnight camping for four people.
The randsco crew towed the new boat and trailer back to the Hutton House, then promptly threw a tarp over it, to protect if from the impending rain.
Reporters have noted no other activity regarding the boat, although they did note that several bushes were removed (and the land cleared), near the wood-shed, to make room for the new investment.
Alex took the arrival of the new boat in stride. Asked what she thought about it, she quipped, "it's cool!" (although she has yet to climb aboard).
The flagship vessel is reportedly easy on fuel, although the proof of the pudding will be when the Randsco staff take the boat to the floating cabin off the west coast of Vancouver Island, this Spring.
