LeBlanc Pilot 32.44  (9.89m)

This boat was built by LeBlanc Brothers Boatbuilders for a ship’s Pilot who works on the Iron Ore ships of the North Shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.  The boat has worked out very well, with great seaworthiness and speed in an area that can be very rough.

This was the second boat from the mould of Bella V, and construction was all-‘glass: very tough and simple.  I also completed the stability booklet to Transport Canada TP7301.
