Looking for... Jim Trout
 
I'm looking for a fellow name of Jim Trout. I use to work with him in the early 80's in Cocoa Beach, Florida. He grew up in Ohio.

He had salvaged an old Herreshoff or some other type of wooden boat. He kept his boat at Port Canaveral. Laid up the hull with plywood and resin. The last I saw of him was in 1984, he had found a hedonistic women and was heading to points south.

The boat was dark blue with a white cabin. I can't remember if it had been a ketch, that he converted to a sloop, or a sloop he converted to a ketch.
Jim would be about 60 now. Just trying to find an old friend.

How about putting his name in the subject line and if you want I will move to General discussion. It seems sailing realted. Many members will not go in Off Topic.

Did you try a google search... more information would help. There's at least one Jim Trout mentioned in Florida.
