    That is gorgeous! At 1/8 scale, that would be 5 feet long, but it looks bigger.

    Any idea of the final weight?
    Will it travel on its own trailer?

    PS Jim Tolpin is building an 1/8 scale dory on Instagram using his miniature hand tolls, of course.

    Our CBC Port Captain, Howard Von Zipper, appeared recently with a sweet looking Honda Monkey 125cc scooter.

    After initial shakedowns, Commander Zipper pronounced acceptable mileage around town of 133 mpg..

    Overhearing his claim, another member reminded us "all men lie about three things: religion, politics, and gas mileage."

    Another CBC member, Dave Wahle, said that may be true, but that he had owned two pieces of equipment that made gas when running, always returning with the fuel tank fuller than when he left. The first was his high school Vespa. And the second is a Wyliecat30 with a Yanmar 1 cylinder diesel inboard.

    Just reporting the facts as stated.

    I would like to share Steve Woodside's eloquent message below to all of us regarding Memorial Day, 2020.

    Friends,

    For many of you, this Memorial Day will be difficult. No traveling to that far-away place where a wreath or bouquet is laid, and there is whispering to a lost loved one. No voyaging offshore to that distant reef where ashes had been scattered long ago. No large gatherings to hug each other, to mourn the recent death of someone close, or to reminisce about family and friends who are no longer present to enliven us.

    For those who regard Earth as singular, however, one can walk alone to a lovely location, pick a stem to place upon a stone, and feel her warmth. And for those who understand that there is but one Ocean, hike to a vantage point where the sun can be seen setting over the sea, and sense his strength.

    Alice Cochran, tall ship sailor, author, teacher, and member of the Call of the Sea Board of Directors, recently shared this quote:


    “I really don’t know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it is because in addition to the fact that the sea changes and the light changes, and ships change, it is because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch it we are going back from whence we came.”

    President John F. Kennedy, speaking at the America’s Cup, 1962


    Whatever setting you chose as your place of remembrance, be well.

    Steven Woodside

    While walking the western side of Santa Cruz Harbor this morning, taped to the hoist I caught sight of notice of a benefit regatta this coming Saturday for Santa Cruz 27's and Moore 24s....presumably single handed, double handed with significant other, or fully crewed with the entire family and dog, although the notice of regatta didn't say except Covid-19 restrictions will be followed, and free rum drinks passed out on a 6 foot pole before the start of the final race.

    On another happy note, Saturday is also an unsponsored cruise towards the Rockpile, outbound on port tack yet, and starboard tack returning. Good luck to all and best wishes and congratulations to our very own Wylieguy who will be marking 45 years of rounding the Rockpile with his 80th Birthday aboard NANCY.

    Gorgeous. Just flippin' gorgeous. Also, I love the idea of racing with the dinghy on deck!

    Alan: Thanks for the compliments.
    We were primarily cruising folk and did not like to risk losing a dinghy under tow much less put up with its drag, especially when racing.

    Actually, MAGIC's pinnace, carried aboard, was means for the ship's Bengal, "Archie", to go visiting. Here Archie is about to board WILDFLOWER in Blunden Harbor, British Columbia. Max disappeared down WILDFLOWER's companionway to inspect our aft bunk for comfort.

    Archie found WILDFLOWER's bunk insufficient for a nap, reboarded his transport, and rejoined MAGIC to take up position on a warm, bronze genoa track.

    Later, Archie inspected MAGIC's rigging, not fully trusting his humans to have things correctly led on the gaff fores'l.
