The SS Minnow, after a disastrous 3 hour tour which left its passengers and crew stranded on a desert island in the 60s, has been purchased and restored by a Vancouver
area man, and was displayed at the Vancouver Boat Show
this week. In attendance was one of the two survivors, the gorgeous "Mary-Anne," one of two of the original 7 who were shipwrecked. Dawn Wells was very gracious, looks incredible, and, along with Tina Louise, are the only two left, with the recent demise of the Professor. The boat
itself was, and is a rather striking vessel of classic
design, and I hope to see her out on the water
soon. Hopefully others here know more about her (the boat
, not Dawn Wells) restoration
than I do, and can add a little more info. Tonight, I dream of being shipwrecked with Mary-Anne, the wholesome Kansas farm girl who elicits less-than-wholesome thoughts in that very same dream of mine.
