She served for many years as the Port Captain's harbor launch at the Palo Alto Yacht Club under the ownership of Thomas B. Olson during the 60s and 70s. A long time member of the CYA she is currently owned by veteran CYA member Jim Butz and is berthed at California Yacht Marina, Wilmington, CA.


Blanche - 1928

Blanchard Boat Co. 36' (Southern California Fleet)

The Blanchard 36 foot stock cruiser, Blanche, was originally Blue Boy, commissioned in 1928 in Seattle.
Twenty-five of these Leigh Coolidge designed Blanchard stock cruisers were built between 1924 and 1930 and, of those, only a few were configured with the enclosed aft cabin. As Blue Boy, she returned to the Blanchard yard shortly after she was launched to have her enclosed aft cabin modified slightly, creating a stepped cabin top which is unique among these boats.  Norm Blanchard has a recollection of this modification being done, but cannot remember why the owner wanted it. CYA member Steve Wilen (Kensington) is a previous owner of the boat and he helped Norm Blanchard compile the written history of Blanchard Boat Company, Knee Deep in Shavings. Steve was helpful in giving some details of the boat’s history.

Owner: Linda LeMoncheck and Jed Shafer
