In fact F29 (hoyt) were built at Tillotson-Pearson.

Re: Sailing from California to Florida via the Panama Canal

So, what does it prove? That the guys weren't prepared for the canal? What it has to do with the size of a boat?

Re: Sailing from California to Florida via the Panama Canal

Are you saying that you don't know one simple fact?
