The CAPE is historic in many respects. The history of the vessel is
well documented in both military service, and with the present owner
in private ownership for the past 21 years. The vessel is
predominantly original in the configuration and propulsion. The Navy
spent money overhauling the main engines, and numerous refurbishments
just prior to decommissioning. After sitting idle for a few years,
this owner has updated some of the comforts and utility features, but
without changing the character of the ship. CAPE has recently been
visited and inspected by her former Navy Captain, and many of her
crew. This was both in Olympia, and for a second reunion where CAPE
was run to Long Beach California to participate in a second crew
reunion. The perfect vessel for the person that always wanted a
minesweeper, or it could be an attractive draw for operations for
eco-tours, kayak or diving expeditions. Coast Guard Documentation

Coastwise. Used under contract for research by the Johns Hopkins
University in the '70's shortly after her first decommissioning by the
navy, she was put back into service by the navy in December of 1984.

MISOGI is impressive in its stature and condition. The 54' length and

boat. The scantlings are suited to an ocean going vessel, for which

live-aboard vessel, she is suited to live outside, still staying warm
and dry in the coldest winters. Shown by appointment only.

and prosperous relationship with one of the Northwest's most prolific
naval architects. Ed Monk, Sr. The raised pilothouse design was an
inspiration that developed in the 1950's and has endured in designs

The Uniflite Company in Bellingham Washington built some of the
worlds best sea boats, and proved their abilities for personal use,
and as military as well as commercial fishing and research vessels.
The Art Nordvedt designs were spacious and roomy without compromising
performance. Built rugged and finished by hand with beautiful teak
interiors, these vessels are among the true modern classics built in
the northwest. Their downfall, osmotic blistering was an accumulation
of factors. Some better, some worse, this vessel has some, but nothing
considered structural and priced accordingly. This vessel was
boathoused in the Olympia Yacht Club until 1997 by the original owner.
Now the second owner has upgraded many aspects, and kept the
maintainance in cruise ready condition. Shown by Appointment Only.
CAPRICE is an outstanding example of a classic in very original
condition. The exterior varnished finishes are in very good condition
with the cabin top coverings in excellent shape after a meticulous
professional restoration. The interior is very original to the period,

of "makeovers' changing the character. This is a vessel for the
enthusiast that wants an original classic Chris.

The Uniflite Yacht Corporation founded in Bellingham Washington was
known for building high quality Art Nordvet designs proven as superior
sea boats. The use of space is appreciated in the spacious layouts.
The quality craftsmanship and attention to detail is evident in the
teak interiors. The demise of this legendary northwest company was the
result of the military contracts for the production of
"Pibbers" that led to the use of fire retardant
petrochemical products not designed for longevity, but for a war zone.
This is an example of a "pre-blister" veasael where the gel
coat finish is as it came from the factory. The maintainance shows the
background of a former Coast Guardsman where everything is in good
order and kept that way. Shown by appointment only.
