Nice yachty conversion, very suitable to the use. But for myself, were I of adequate funds and inclined to something that does not sail, I'd rather her lower policeboat profile.
This is rather like John Waynes PT boat conversions - well done and all but part of boating is phantacy and if I had a former RCMP vessel, I'd like a wheelhouse that gives me the feeling of tracking illegal furs or something.
Nice cruiser but a bit big for us. Here's a '62 RCMP cruiser that would fit in the driveway:

I think John Wayne's boat was a converted Canadian minesweeper
named Dead Goose or something, wasn't it?

fyi ... John Wayne's old boat is docked next to CWB at the Armory on South Lake Union in Seattle. If you're in the area, stop by and take a look. It's really very nice.

But not the Wild Goose. He had two conversions done, the first obe somewhat smaller. I believe the boat you're mentioning was the first one, before the Goose. She's in Newport Harbor and available for charter. When I was on board for a corporate party two years ago I just had to lay down in his bed..it was a bed not a birth, and extra long...and think about who else had been there.

Tell me, does the RCMP pronounce it "a boat" or "a boot."
04-24-2008, 10:46 PM
While not entirely certain, I would hazard to say that 'round "aboot" these parts they call it a boat and more precisely where I am,un bateau :)

a "boot" is the trunk of a car in England.
