I lived on Whampoa once!

I joined Sailnet.com just to say... I lived on Whampoa once!! We owned her for a few years (1977-1990's, early) and my father, Don Bugden totally refurbished her. We cruised mainly the Cape and islands; but also took her to Florida for a year, and a too-short trip to Bimini, Bahamas. Some of my best memories were aboard Whampoa. We were also lucky to sail and cruise with her sister-ship, Illusion.

If you are interested, I can post a few photos of Whampoa when we had her. Some pretty nice ones--also shots of the refurbishing. Does she still have the 5-toed good-luck dragon on the binnacle cover...? My Aunt's sister carved it

I am happy to see she is owned and loved, she is such a beautiful boat. We were sad to see her go. My sisters and I were just saying tonight "I wonder what happened to...", hence the Google-search. Happy sails
