    That's no 1960 37' Wheeler Express Cruiser! That looks like a 24' swing keel sailboat that is probably called Maryanne :)

    Actually I believe the real Minnow was here in British Columbia working as a tour boat.

    The wreck was not my fault. Anyway, it was supposed to be a three hour tour. A three hour tour!

    It's the Skipper's fault, he should of checked before hand that the weather would start to get rough

    You stumbled on the set of M. Night Shyamalan's reboot where the castaways discover they were "stranded" just off the East Coast all along.

    Yeah, the guy who could improvise a particle accelerator out of a pair of coconut husks and a piece of bamboo couldn't fix an 18 inch hole in a wooden hull.

    That's not a Minnow, it's an Anchovyo_O

    In that episode, the Professor did not actually build it, the particle accelerator washed up on the beach.

    Ballad of Gilligan’s Island

    Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
    A tale of a fateful trip
    That started from this tropic port
    Aboard this tiny ship.

    The mate was a mighty sailing man,
    The skipper brave and sure.
    Five passengers set sail that day
    For a three hour tour, a three hour tour.

    The weather started getting rough,
    The tiny ship was tossed,
    If not for the courage of the fearless crew
    The Minnow would be lost, the Minnow would be lost.

    The ship set ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle
    With Gilligan
    The Skipper too,
    The millionaire and his wife,
    The movie star
    The Professor and Mary Ann,*
    Here on Gilligan's Isle.


    Full Version Continues:

    Now this is the tale of our castaways,
    They're here for a long, long time,
    They'll have to make the best of things,
    It's an uphill climb.

    The first mate and his Skipper too,
    Will do their very best,
    To make the others comfortable,
    In their tropic island nest.

    No phone, no lights, no motor car,
    Not a single luxury,
    Like Robinson Crusoe,
    It's primitive as can be.

    So join us here each week my friend,
    You're sure to get a smile,
    From seven stranded castaways,
    Here on "Gilligan's Isle."

    (*In the original version it's "and the rest".
    The Professor and Mary Ann were not named)

    I've been there. Worked at Wallops Island a few times. You're pretty close to actually being on Gilligan's Island now
