Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

The light blue hull with the wood stick behind FL is HELENE. HELENE is a late 1950's vintage Ben Seaborn design and a near sistership to the famous Seaborn SEA FEVER.
With fin keel and skeg hung rudder Seaborn was ahead of his time. He really knew what made boats go.

I tried unsuccessfuly several times to find out what the relationship between Seaborn and Garden was like. Seaborn's boats were dominant on the race course. But despite the fact that both designers lived in Seattle I don't think they ever had much contact. Hard to imagine.

It was a very cold, cold. I had been warned about the Mosquitos as well but did alright in that regard.

It's also a dry 35 MPH wind.

As the old saying goes - "There's nothing between them and the North Pole but a few barbed wire fences".

Or how about the seasons there? - "9 months of snow and 3 months of bad sledding".

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

It's there. Probably in the shed. A SA buddy from Australia is here and he went to see it yesterday. He is pretty sure he saw it. Hard to mistake it. Too bad you didn't stop. You possibly could have met the client and got the tour.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Awww..that's disappointing...

Must have been in the shed... Door to the shed was locked...

I walked around for a while and looked pretty hard. I was there around 2:00.. It was a last-minute trip, since the aircraft I was to fly to Charleston on never left the gate due to a maintenance problem..

(Not a locally made aircraft)

Oh well, maybe some other time..

CSR in Ballard, right?
