Captain Bly .... WOW, like that's the coolest thing ever. That's my all time favorite movie. I hope you're going to keep a blog page on the project. I must have watched the movie 100 times .... really.

Re: The Wanderer sailboat used in the Captain Ron movie sold

Will the new owner be taking out Captain Ron and Wanderer fans on cruises. Put me on the list before it gets long. My wife and I are long time fans. Good luck to your restoration, let me know if you need help. Ive painted a few hulls and gold flake detailing.

Re: The Wanderer sailboat used in the Captain Ron movie sold

Well... How about an update on the famous sailboat used in the Captain Ron movie, "The Wanderer"? After taking on what looks to be a 4 year project, I moved her over to the yard to let the work begin. Once in the yard I took a long hard look a what once was a magnificent vessel that sadly to say individuals just could not take of her over time. I stepped back and said, what the hell did I get myself involved in, and, where do I start? First, we pulled the 120hp Ford Lehman out and took it to the shop for a complete rebuild which should take about 7 to 8 weeks. As the days passed we cut out 9 stainless tanks and removed all the plumbing, wiring and everything that either had worn out or was just not needed. Starting with her bottom; as she had 18 thru-hulls. WOW! It looked as if each time a previous owner wanted to add something to her that required punching a hole in her, sadly they did. We closed off all but 9 and replaced the old gate valves with modern day brass ball valves. Then off with the old prop as it was badly need of a new one. We moved to the rudder; off with it I said, as it was in worse shape than originally thought. Water logged and damaged we cut it in half then rebuilt it from the inside out. After 30 days on in the yard and a new bottom, rudder and prop; oh, and all those new thru-hulls we splashed her for a short tow over to Waterford Marina where she will stay until she's a beautiful sailing ship once again. Once she's back you will be able to charter her on Galveston Bay. Captain Bob

You mean it didn't all come together for you over the course of a two week cruise with a crazy charter skipper? LOL!

Post Re: The Wanderer sailboat used in the Captain Ron movie sold

Anyone know who owns the Formosa that Cap'n Bly worked on? It's been here at the Waterford Harbor Marina in Kemah, TX in the same condition since July 2015 when I moved here.

I walk past her almost every day, daydreaming and wondering about the Wanderer...

Maybe someone who lives in these really expensive homes owns her? Did they run out of money? She has no masts, just tarps over some of the woodwork on deck, lots of rotten wood. She just looks sad and in need of some love.

I wish I had the time, money and energy to make her gorgeous again.
