For Anyone in the Virginia - Norfolk / Portsmouth Area

We sailed thru Norfolk back in the beginning of Oct 2010 and did a quick haul out at Tidewater Marina. We happen to see a small Brigatine for sale in one of the slips. If I remember correct the name was Red Wing. Since then we have thought about going back and possibly buying it if it is in good shape. It most certainly looked well cared for on the outside. We have been unable to find ANY information on the boat since we left. If anyone knows this boat please contact me, Thank You

Would that be on the main dock as you head toward shore? It's been for sale a very long long time. I don't recall the name but do recall the boat.
