Yes, thanks. I am going to post the page in "Gear & Maintenance", maybe some of the old "wooden boat folks" might be interested. Thanks for your interest, I will give you the last word.

Back to Magnetic Variance, thanks, Dean.

Michael Klack, 1942 to 1947 was my Dad's partner. He left the partnership in about 1943, IIRC

"Don", "Ron" who knows? I think there were brothers involved in the yard?



Being 10 years old in 1945 all I knew was that it "tipped". From what I can remember it was built in Vallejo in the 20's as a centerboard boat and later converted to full keel without the centerboard. IIRC, my Dad sold it in about 1947. The next time we saw it, in about 1974, or so, it was anchored out among the hippie house boats in Richardson Bay, in pretty rough shape, with its original name still on it. Who knows where it had been in all those years.

To the best of my memory, the picture could actually be the original boat we had? It had a small flat head motor in it with an offset shaft. Maybe a "Utility four", predecessor to the Atomic four?

Paul T
Hah! Found her!

Polaris:







Beautiful boat! And looks to me like your photo of your families' boat, no?

(And yes, now that you mention it, I do recall that Andersen's was run by a couple of brothers...and none too fond of one another, either, eh?)

Paul--You realize of course that we are not helping the OP at all with this waltz down memory lane, eh?

That yacht looks like a boat by the name Polaris that used to do the Master Mariners. Very fast so long as the runners were handled well, eh?

"Gray Hair", oh, yes, what there is still left of it. At 79 I an fortunate to still be upright, and know my name, on most days. Trying to run with the big dogs on PWRG is, however becoming more & more difficult, especially with those folks from Australia & Canada.

A boat identical to one, maybe the boat, my Dad had in 1945. I can still remember it smelling like "old boat" when we opened it up. Kept it at the City owned St. Francis basin, before it was enlarged. Boat's name was the "Flirt"

When you were at Clipper Ships, was Herb Madden running the place? (Boy he was a crusty old fadoddle head,eh?) While we were there, the Hiscocks came through in Wanderer IV and spent a few months. (Now Eric was a guy that could seriously drink! He came aboard our boat once and we offered him and Susan a glass of wine upon which he pulled out his own bottle of Whiskey! Nothing like Whiskey and monster CC cookies from the Pine Street Bakery.)

I have to admit though that I was glad to get out of Sausalito after the hippies all but took over the place. We moved up to a mooring on the San Rafael Canal until we finally got a slip at our club in Brickyard Cove, Richmond Yacht Club.

Ah well, Paully, we're showing our gray hair I guess....

Later we kept our sailboat at Clipper Yacht Harbor, basin # 2 for ten years. We called it "cyclone alley" in the afternoons during the summer. One chance to get it docked right, one chance.

OK, here is a memory challenge for you. Who was the really big heavy hippie woman that always wore a MuMu and ran a restaurant, in North Beach, I think, then later moved it to Sonoma? Something like "Big Momma"?

Your prize will be determined later.

Senior moment flash? Anita's Galley? or something like that?

Another flash: Juanita Munson? Juanita's Place, Galley? IIRC, a lot of the San Francisco "movers & shakers", like Herb Caen & Melvin Belli used to go there. As a telephone repair man, I went to Melvin Belli's residence, a "Community Apartment", now called Condos, I think. Very interesting person.

Bingo:

She actually did a pretty good job.)
