Wow, thank you for the information, Cheechako. I have never been able to find much on the Wind
& Sea company. Was Steve Foss connected at all with Foss tugs?
I think that may be my boat you saw. I had thought my boat was hull
#2 and that it was painted blue at a later date, but I was never certain.
What I do know is she was renamed from Medea to Jo, and that she is a 1977 but never saw water
until '81. I had a guy emailed me a few years ago asking if my boat was the Medea.
He told me his father had past away while working on the Boat. His mother then had Uniflite finish it. He lived on it in lake Union for 4 years, while attending UW and then the family
Yes, the rudder does protrude about 2 feet out, it sits an inch or so below the waterline. I can see my rudder position while under way, but not crazy about it hanging out at the dock
. Someone told me Joe did that so you can climb in the boat. Not sure I believe them, and I tried, it doesn't work.
btw to your early comment about if Joe Trumbly was still around.
He is not:
