The series was shot almost entirely in California so a partial mock-up of a real vessel, floating but dock bound, was used. The real vessel was used for the stock seagoing shots of the character boat "Tiki III" and it had a history. The "Pilgrim" was an eighty-five foot Alden Schooner which had sailed around the World starting in the Summer of 1932, a voyage that was chronicled in National Geographic in 1937. It was subsequently owned by several celebrities and others, including reputedly for a time Gardner McKay. In 1980 it met a sad but colorful end when it sank in the category five hurricane Allen in the Grenadines. See more »
My call to the producers and owners of the rights of the series: Why not transcript all the episodes in a beautiful DVD box set, before thousands of meters of film are waisted in some remote forgotten draw... Like many of the fans, many young viewers would be delighted to discover what their elders have watched with so much passion in their youth! They would then understand why some of their parents became either sailors, adventurers or travellers, and had their lives changed by watching Captain Troy and his schooner Tiki!
