Through 47 years of marriage, Jim and Maila Cadd have owned 14 boats.
“It’s a terrible disease,” Jim joked.
None turn heads — or require as much TLC — as their newest acquisition, which is actually the oldest boat they’ve skippered.
For the last year, the Pacific Northwest couple have been motoring up and down the Columbia River in the Rinta, a 75-year-old wooden yacht. With its well-polished teak paneling and shiny brass fittings, the 50-foot-long Rinta is a sleek tribute to a bygone age of boat building.
