Yacht number two in Paul Allen’s fleet, and we’re not even out of the top five yet; dang! But then again, given that Forbes magazine estimates his worth at $20 billion, what else is he to do with all of that cash? At least he keeps his yachts moving, unlike some other owners. For example, Tatoosh, which he acquired last year, spent time in New Zealand around Christmas. (Interesting side note: She was too big to enter Auckland’s Viaduct Harbor and therefore had to stay at nearby Princess Wharf, the same spot that cruise ships use.) Then in July she was seen in Honolulu, Hawaii; unfortunately it seems she had some engine problems, judging by the radio conversations other boaters overheard. But the problems must have been addressed quickly, as Tatoosh was seen in Vancouver, British Columbia, a month later. Her arrival there generated nearly two dozen postings on an Internet forum that focuses on happenings in Vancouver; the first posting was under the startling heading “Paul Allen found floating in English Bay" which the poster admits he wrote to attract attention.
