BOAT: Claudia G.
DESIGNER/ BUILDER: Magna Marine, Moncton, New Brunswick Canada http://www.ctidirectory.com/search/company.cfm?company=61673
HULL: Solid fiberglass
LENGTH: 31 feet [9.44 meters]
Officially known as a Magna Miramachi 3100XL, Claudia G. is one of just a handful of boats produced by the short lived New Brunswick based company known as Magna marine. Her lines are distinctive and purposeful. The interior features varnished wood with a galley and shower. Three steps up is the enclosed pilot house- designed for comfort in bad weather.
Claudia G. has enjoyed somewhat of a spoiled existence under the regular care of Cananicut Marine Services in Jamestown. http://www.conanicutmarina.com/In addition to expert maintenance, she was the beneficiary of a hull modification that made her more efficient when cutting water.
All of this pampering has come to an end. Launched just before last week’s storms Claudia G. got a taste of what lies ahead in her next life. After a sea trial here in Narragansett bay, she will be trucked to her new home in Alaska.
Going along with the boat will be the legacy of craftsmanship and care that is so prevalent in our area.
