Good to know; thanks. Let me know if you're ever inclined to clean house.
I wonder if CHINOOK is still in the area?
TEGARRI, which was pictured on the original marketing brochures, was repainted in blue AwlGrip, and is still active and moored in Ballard. The current owner of that boat talked with the owner of another Bystedt passing by in the Ship Canal, but I haven't seen that one myself.
We purchased ours in Everett several years ago; originally red gelcoat (still red, but repainted). It was named ROSETTA 1 when we purchased her, since renamed "SCOUT". Ours has been moored at EBM since we got her.
There's another red Bystedt in Portland which was listed on YachtWorld a while back, but I don't know the current status. Then there's GOOD NEWS, which tore it up on the local racing circuit for many years under a previous owner (he now races a J boat, "Great White").
Our old girl is still going strong, and getting younger with every completed project.
Back to the spirit of the thread: I'm glad that this is not a steel boat.
