Departing Crew Bellhaven North Carolina
Centaur was the dream boat of Robin and many others . This unique vessel was a custom West Coast Type motor sailer, built in 1929 to the heaviest commercial scantlings. With the recent contact by a reader, whos father had owned her briefly before the United States Government appropriated her during World War II, the tale of this fine vessel becomes complete.
This article is a tale of dreams and the scope of the requirements for a vessel of this size and the results of ownership while living aboard.
Owning 'the dream " is no small task and Robin eventually sold her to her current owner.
After falling out of touch with her owner we can now report on Centaurs present condition and situation.
Perhaps there is another dreamer out there ready to rescue her.
