How we found her

We found Tarka the Otter in an ad for used boats for sale in Ivy Lea Marina. That is in Ontario near Kingston. Camping nearby, we spent the weekend inspecting the boat and her contents. Previous potential buyers had done a thorough job of rummaging and everything was all over the place. She had been stored in a barn for six years providing a great home for the resident mice. Unfortunately boats have many nooks and crannies that they could get in to but not out of.
We found all sorts of treasures like out of date flares, and fuel oil, kerosene, batteries. 
Tarka the Otter came with every sail on the sailplan except the spinnaker. vega 019.jpg (262137 bytes)
The rigging was well bound with miles of duct tape vega 029.jpg (196603 bytes)
