    Thanks, Greg. ERIN is a cool looking boat...Here is more info on her design from 1993. I guess there was only one built.

    I have received a report of a mysterious "TURBULENCE" emanating from the South East section of the Santa Cruz harbor.
    People in the know have been secretive as to what might be causing this disturbance of the natural flow in the harbor scene.

    No secrets. The "turbulence," aka riffles and small whirlypools, comes from underneath WILDFLOWER and extends a dozen feet astern... H Spruit knows this: that is him drilling the largish holes in the floor of WILDFLOWER's cockpit, an act of faith on behalf of the owner.

    More will be revealed should you attend the always festive Santa Cruz Lighted Boat Christmas Parade, 5:30 pm, Saturday, Dec.2.

    A bit extreme just for red and green underwater lights.

    But there's always duct tape.

    A ration of grog at Capitola Boat Club for whoever can identify the function of the two 2 5/8" diameter holes Howard is cutting in the floor of WILDFLOWER's cockpit. And no, they are not related to underwater lights, beer cans, fishing, or means of self bailing.

    Two holes, one to let the water in and the other to let it out.
    In any top secret action the workers are never told exactly what they are really doing, so I may never know for sure:>}

    Not a bad guess. This should be fun. I'm pretty sure I know what the holes are for, but of course I could be very wrong.
    Since it might be considered that I have inside information, I will not make a guess. But I do like Bob's guess for a number of reasons including the fact that the Flux Capacitor was the (fictional) invention of (the fictional) Doc Brown. (That's a hint.)

    I think it's the start of WF's manual propulsion system for the next R2AK.
