Her Owners

Got an amazing phone call from Arlevon’s former caretakers Charlie and Pam last week. They owned her for about 15-20 years – longer than I did! Charlie helped fill in a lot of the pieces of the puzzle that were missing….and now we have a new list of previous owners to contact.
1-1953-1968
Roy, who was the son of Axel Fisk who built her, and his sister Yvonne. The boat was named after Roy’s sisters, Arlene and Yvonne.

2-???? George – who installed the Buda DA engine that was often used to power Navy Captain skiffs in WWII days – click on picture for link to navy whaleboats.

3-Mike Zittel , who owns Zittel Marina in Olympia, another historic maritime family.

4-Mark Papworth (obit. 2003)
Charlie writes: Mark was a forensic archeologist and at one time Chief Deputy Coroner for Thurston County.
We traded a 18 foot Bayliner and one dollar for her. His wife wanted a fast boat and so I took her for a ride at 40 knots and the deal was sealed.  Mark had a buddy that fancied himself as an electrician and I found wires going everywhere and many with no purpose. (Francine writes – boy do I remember those wires – some running through the bilge and under the engine)

5-1980-1995 Charlie and Pam Rhubart

6-1995-1997 Eric Carlson

7-1997-2013 Francine Rose 360 765-4518

8- 2013-Present Dru Thompson

Meanwhile, I am working on Arlevon’s movie. Here are some photo albums from previous owners (click to link)
