Tartan 37 Pensacola Shipyard, FL
When we bought her she had a name already on her stern.

The next year we painted her name on the new mainsail cover. Which 7 years later, still looks great.

Why does the "T" look strange. She's a 1980 Tartan 37-2.

UNCAS,....

....the last Sachem of the Mohegan tribe. A replica of the Buzzards Bay 18 class. None of the 1903 original class exists. Edge glued planking (tight-no swelling up required), carbon fiber faux spruce spars.

This lovely hand crafted shape started as a stack of lumber.

One of my favorite songs, so I figured it was a appropriate name for my favorite toy. (actually my only toy)

Also one of mine although I prefer the George Benson / Al Jerreau version. The CD "Givin it up" was our goto to put on once the anchor was dropped and sat down with a beverage or two. Summer Breeze was one of the songs that just made it right. In the end Breezin' from the same album, won out as more unique and was right up there in the perfect list.

Here's a night photo of our first keel boat, an O'day 25. Named after the Cat Stevens song and our wish to sail under a full moon, which we did the first season.
