The highlight for me was a 1983 Cape Dory 45, Fiona Rois. We spent a long time chatting with Mike, the owner of this beautiful, meticulously cared for boat. He wasn't kidding when he said that his listing at is detailed. It's nice to have pictures of the ideas I intend to copy.
Was it in Newport? Never heard of the free brokerage show.
