- The Cape James is a solidly built US Military boat with an extensive and exciting history. She was in the Phillipines during World War II and hosted the likes of General Douglas MacArthur and his staff. This stately old ship has seen service as a private and commercial vessel around the world for many years. She has great lines and is quite seaworthy. She has been converted to a very comfortable live aboard but does need some TLC. The living quarters are quite nice and are being used currently. Other parts of the vessel need quite a bit of attention. This is definitely a project boat. The owner is looking for any legitimate offer. He is moving on to a larger project. All offers considered. Very flexible terms.
- The Cape James was launched in 1944 from Martinolich Shipyard on a fog shrouded October morning in San Francisco Bay. She was the Little Ship FP47. She was then used as a signal ship transmitting news stories from reporters following the Southwest Pacific landings in WW2. They boarded her in Hollandia, new Guinea and followed the action through the Philippines and Borneo. After that she became the Mt. Edge Cumbe and was used up the coast to Alaska as an Indian affairs ship. Here things are not so clear, but the next chapter was to include fishing off the Grand Banks of New Foundland. She was converted into a trawler and then a packer by the time she started her fishing days on the coastal waters of British Columbia.
