More Info :


  Kimtah is a fiberglass trawler designed by Ed Monk Jr. and built by Garren Blakley in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1976. Ed Monk Jr. is one of the premier yacht designers  and Garren Blakley is best known for its line of 40 - 50 ft commercial fishing trawlers used thru- out British Columbia and Alaska.
  Kimtah was purchased in October 1998 and spent the summer of 1999 cruising from her home port of Anacortes, WA to Southeast Alaska and back. The following year she cruised thru-out British Columbia and The San Juan Islands of Washington. Preparations began for cruising to Central America.
  In the winter of 2001-2002, Kimtah was hauled out. A new Northern Lights generator, hydraulic bow thruster, hydraulic anchor windlass,Spectra water maker, washer, dryer, dish washer, vacuflush toilet, and pump-out, were installed.  All electronics were updated and the canvas Bimini top was replaced with a fiberglass hard top. She was completely rewired and the interior was remodeled with solid teak cabinets and Corian countertops.
  In June of 2002 Kimtah left Anacortes on a great six month cruise down the Pacific west coast (stopped at nearly all ports along the way) and arrived in San Diego in December.   She left the USA in December and over the next 12 years, cruised Central America, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Columbia, Honduras and Belize before returning to Key West Florida and cruising up the inter coastal waterway to Washington, DC and then back to the Rio Dulce, Guatemala.
  Over the past 16 years of cruising, Kimtah has been maintained and upgraded with many improvements including active stabilizers, air conditioning, water-maker, single side band radio with email modem and solar panels.

Maintenance & Upgrades

Wesmar Dynamic Stabilizers
Kimtah is equipped with Wesmar dynamic stabilizer which remove over
90% of the boats rolling motion. The system begins with a motion detector
located on the fly bridge and a computer control panel in the wheelhouse.
A 5 gpm belt driven hydraulic pump is on the port side of the engine
provides power to the the hydraulic control module which in turn activates the hydraulic cylinders on the two fin
activator located in the forward engine room. The activators rotate the 6 ft x
2 ft fins on each side of the hull to compensate for any roll detected by the
Once started the system works continuously to reduce rolling. They were
installed in 2003 and have made a huge improvement in the cruising
