Designed by Ed Monk Sr. and built by Fenner & Hood in Vancouver in 1947. Blithe Spirit is a part of British Columbia’s coastal history, with some of her colorful adventures found in the owner’s father, Jim Spilsbury’s books; Spilsbury’s Album & Spilsbury’s Coast. Blithe Spirit is built of double red cedar planking, which was re-caulked and refastened with stainless steel fasteners in 2005/2006. Well maintained by knowledgeable owners who have loved her since 1955.
