Here is an interesting bit of text with regard to Malibu Rapids – a place not far from where Merva finds home these days. It was taken from a ‘Bell Harbor Classic’ article (so credit to them).
1926 | 100′ | Blanchard Boat | |
Malibu is a classic 100-foot fantail motor yacht designed by Ted Geary. She was built by Blanchard Boat Co. in 1926 for the owners of “Rancho Malibu”, then a remote ranch on the California Coast, but now the site of Malibu, California. Her third owner developed a posh resort at Princess Louisa Inlet, BC (Canada). Now a Christian Youth camp, Malibu Camp, as well as Malibu Rapids, are named after the boat.
