Brief historyRichard & Kathy Bacon were the second owner. They don't remember the original owners name. He lived in eastern Canada when he bought the bare hull. He spent 10 years building the boat and he had it shipped to a new residence in Vancouver before he was ready to launch it. We bought it from him in 1996 and moved it to Missoula Montana where we did major work on it for 2 1/2 years. The Bacons had it moved back to Seattle in 1998 and started our 9 year travels around the world, circumnavigating. The Bacons sold Balmacara in Florida in 2007.
