ROSA is on a distinguished road
"ROSA" Our Cutter was built in Minn. in 1977 by Tom Copeman, who was assisted by a shipwright. The shipwright's wife was Rosa. Rosa supplied all the support for the construction in the way of food, drink and the like daily, during the five year construction period. Rosa became ill and passed away a couple of days prior to the launching. Tom, who had had not been able to decide on as name decided that Rosa had to be it. When we found "ROSA" in '05 we just could not change the name and so Rosa lives on. We have learned to love her too!
