First photo is NOT MINE. Belongs to our lovely transit passengers, Oxnard-Ventura, 23 January or whatever.
Last photo is for posterity.
If you’ve got what I assume is about a million and a half dollars I recumbent that instead of saving it for your next-of-kins, you get this schooner and leave something much cooler behind for them. Nigel Irens, they say, never goes out of style.
From the WoodenBoat classifieds, naturally.
