Just sit right back....

Gilligan's Minnow no longer lost

I didn't know that there was a BC connection to Gilligan's Island until I heard it on the news last night. One of the four boats used in shooting the show is located on Vancouver Island and is now for sale. Ironically, it also ran aground on a reef (near the Queen Charlote Islands) and was being restored by it's owner. This particular SS Minnow was used on the opening credits of the second season.

I loved watching the re-runs (the original show aired from 1964 to 1967)--although I'm not sure why the professor couldn't fix the boat even though he built all the other fancy contraptions on the island.
