KAHOLEE is a 1960 Pearson Triton, hull #158. She is 48 as of this writing and it was love at first sight.

Sold my 2000 34', currently sail a 1986 17' (and a 1964 17' before her) and am presently looking at a 1960 28'.

Like Merlin I am moving backwards in time. ;-)

Say Kaholee - the 1960 I'm considering is a Triton yawl! Small world.

PS - several members of the Wooden Boat forum conside the Triton "an Honorary Wooden Boat". I like that.

Hughes 31'8
1981

I know they have a bad rap but Rafiki is an amazing boat. She's perfect and original condition! Even has original upholstery.

(besides the rotten OMC saildrive that you have to perform a ritual- boil an eye of newt and sacrifice a chicken- every time you start her up...but then she runs beautifully)

Bought her last year...first boat.

s/v Rafiki
