Re: Douglas 32

All Douglas Owners,

The new Douglas Owners Group web site is now on the Internet.

https://sites.google.com/site/douglasownersgroup/home

It has been updated with new Douglas boats and owners, and has two new items:
1/ The 'Kemana' book is online as a series of pdf files, one for each chapter.
It covers Niek and Brita Zeldenrust's 7 years sailing the Pacific!

2/ Mark Hood's restoration of 'Dodger' has been added to the 'Projects' page.

Please send any new information to the webmaster e-mail address on the main page.
- Kim

Re: Douglas 32

Nateman,
Looks like you have experience with major boat repairs. Is it the one in Trenton with a Volvo 30, no sails and no rudder? Will look forward to more details...

Haha, we made sure this one isn't going to need a restore!

She's a beautiful example and in immaculate condition. We are very happy to have her soon and have our work cut out for us! The original owners have taken really good care of her!

Re: Douglas 32

We splashed her May 23rd. It was a very exciting day for us as the new owners and bitter sweet for the previous owners. Mike bought the boat new when he was 26 years old. 45 years later he is saying good bye to her. Truly wonderful people that helped us get to know her and continue to help as we need it. Once in a lifetime you find a boat in this condition with only one owner. I'm 41 and will be lucky to own the boat for even 30 years...
