Very nice boat. Lovely classic lines. Hope you were close friends. Hope he invites you out onto the boat for a sail.

This was recently launched by a childhood friend from back in the day..
Only in my dreams will I ever be able to behold or sail on such a “Yacht”. Does your childhood friend need any more friends?

Thanks for sharing...fantastic boat!

It won't be anywhere near the Gulf coast because of that draft.

Gorgeous boat. It reminds me of a boat berthed a couple of slips down from us when I was a kid. Her name was Sandpiper. I don't know who designed her, but she looked a lot like that boat only in 55'. There was an old retired couple living aboard. Very comfortable below too.

Beautiful boat! I just spent the last few days adding a few maintenance coats to my brightwork and all that beautiful wood work makes me want to vomit! It is clearly a stress reaction on my part!

We will meet him in Gulfport Ship Channel.:):)

our excursions to Cat Island (Mississippi Coast)
Raft up easy, only 0.5 nm East from your old "pirate gold" hunting days on Cat Island.

Maybe he found some and didn't cut you in for a share!:doh:


PS: He can use my boat as his dinghy type yacht!:biggrin:

Anyone think the boom looks like a small dingy?
Its always funny how much work they go to to make all that wood look like plastic.

There are a couple of these chartering down here. Such a pleasure to share an anchorage with a beauty like this. And that rare sight of one under sail, priceless!
