Built in 1931 for a Colonel E.R.Tooley (Victorian Regiment, BC) as a “Gentleman’s Cruiser”, MEKO was subsequently bought as a derelict vessel by retired shipwright Mike Haas of Squamish, B.C., in the early 2000s, as a project boat. He stripped the boat back to frames and started a rebuild that would take between 2005 – 2012. Mike passed away in 2018 and Damien Bryan became the caretaker in 2020. The vessel is a testament to Mike’s skill with wood, his eye for detail, and his flair for simple elegance.
