Re: Hello from Bucksport, Maine and...
Great. I guess you have enough property for your private fleet! I envy you. I'm a wooden boat sailor, owning 2 trailer boats and one cruiser, all wooden. I've read Macintosh's book and used his advice in repair. I'm also on Long Island, let me know if I can give you a hand.
No need to envy me, I can tell you. Sorry for such a long delay in responding. Just noticed the post.
Since I'd posted, poor Sarabande sails only the big ocean in the sky now.
A vindictive ex-girlfriend decided to have the 35' all-wood ketch cut up and burned; I didn't even get to find out what happened to that big iron keel or the other hardware or, even her bell for that matter.
Poor Bud is probably rolling in his grave at both her heartless, sorry, dispicable actions and my delay in preventing them.
