Description

CANGARDA may be unique: an obviously gorgeous, fully functioning Edwardian era private pleasure steam yacht of significant size and undoubted provenance. Her rebuild and restoration led by Bob McNeil and executed by Jeffrey Rutherford, completed in 2009, was painstaking in its combination of authenticity with practicality and capability. Apart from all those superlatives, CANGARDA is an easily and economically driven steam yacht, powered by her original steam engine and its associated auxiliaries. That so much of her original carpentry could be re-used in the entirely faithfully rebuilt hull ensures that 21st Century owners can very comfortably, safely and practically live and cruise in this most amazing and admired, beautiful time machine.

Restorer's Comments

“Sometimes it is not that people find boats but rather that the boat finds an owner. Most of this is not particularly rational. All the above applies here. Originally shown as a proposed project in the summer of 2002, it was not until the Herreshoff Rendezvous of that year that the “bug” bit. For some reason the idea of restoring CANGARDA really sunk in.”

Robert G. McNeil, 2006

Rebuild / Restoration

The rebuild and restoration of CANGARDA was informed by two principal sources of information, and, as in all the best such undertakings, a clear and ambitious vision for how the vessel would be used post restoration, including open sea passage making.

The sources were:

1. The existing Pusey & Jones plans preserved at the Hagley Museum, Wilmington, Delaware 
These records are very fragmentary, containing many small scale plans. Scans of these drawings formed the basis for new drawings prepared by Andrew Davis’s Tri-Coastal Marine to satisfy Coast Guard and ABS requirements. 

2. The plethora of photographs from the Fulford Museum, Brockville, Canada
And pictures taken and provided by earlier owner/ restorer/ preserver Richard Reedley, and others.

Significant effort was made to keep the restored CANGARDA like original by using every part from the original vessel found in storage while mindful of the open sea requirement and subject to all the elements that implies. To make the vessel safely operable, while the steam engines and many of the original valves, sight gages and pressure sensors were restored for re-use, a new oil (rather than coal) fired boiler was constructed, and the operation is automated so that no human is required to be constantly in the engine room during operations. Other than this, the design and outfitting of the engine room is as close to the original as possible. The original electric panel and gauges were installed. The engine room telegraph system and the steam anchor windlass – and the anchor itself - are the originals. 

Much of the vessel’s original woodwork and fittings, having been carefully stored under earlier ownerships could be re-used, involving often a fascinating process something akin to assembling a complicated jigsaw puzzle without the box’s cover picture. The project’s key carpenter was able to find panels that fitted the exact structure of the cabins, even to the extent he was able to show how one tree was used in sequential pieces placed in the after cabin. Studiously determining how each piece, a panel or a small part of the mouldings, was utilized has added to the authenticity of the restoration.

The accommodations were constructed in the original configuration. Sinks in the cabins as well as the water valves are original. Lock sets, hinges, pin rails, handrail parts, bulwarks, bunk faces and drawers and a long list of other items are all original.

Of course there are always compromises in such work – for example, CANGARDA has full modern navigational and communication aids (all of which can be concealed when she is dockside). However, if Charles Canfield or George Fulford walked the decks they would not see many apparent changes to the vessel they enjoyed so much.
