Used to own that boat in Catalina Island. Shipped from Union Bay Washington. Hope someone buys her, she is a great boat.

Rob, I hope you still are around. There was a listing for the Boat as a Lien sale. I fell in love with her right away. I would like to buy her out right if you would let me. I will take good care of her. Of course you could visit any time you liked.

Thanks in Advance,

She is a magnificent boat Rob, even with out the topsides paint.

She is the same age as me but clearly in better condition.

It’s hard to believe now that she was still fishing under sail back in 1951.

Times may have changed but she still looks good.
