Jennifer Morse, “Datsa” W30 Horizon II

Hello everyone! My name is Jennifer and I'm the new proud owner of "Datsa" Vega Horizon II. I'm happy to be apart of this group and am certainly looking forward to all the wealth's of information all you Willard Captains will bring in to life! My husband Sam and I wanted to follow one of our biggest dreams now that the kids are grown, take to the sea. We have been slowly working on her, but she was in great shape to begin with. I can say with out a doubt, her first owner Seth loved her and took wonderful care of her until his passing, but she's been just sitting on a dock for 10ish years and needed love. Also look forward to rendezvous with ya all!

My apologies; I thought people were trying to identify the model/age of the Willard which is why I said "looks like ours". Ours is safely moored at home on Vancouver Island unless somebody took it last night to the east coast. I'll try and check a little later. 😁

sorry. this is the Caloosahatchee River- the InterCoastal. He's heading west, to Ft. Myers. He would have had to come across the Okeechobee through two locks and he's now headed to the last lock before Ft. Myers.

That looks like one of the earlier 40 pilothouses.

Hello All,

11/28 this passed in front of my house. I think it's one of the big Willards no? It's double ended. I don't know who it was nor did I get the name of the boat.

Anyhow- maybe it can get forwarded to the owner if someone can ID it.

Thanks for the greeting, Gary.
One of our retired sons and his wife may want to acquire a trawler in
the Puget Sound area sometime during 2023, and I thought I would help
with the search.
So is your boat now located in the Bellingham marina?

Welcome to the group, John. I had my boat in Blaine for many years and
liked it very much. All except the commute from Bellingham, that is.
