Hello & Thank You

I googled "water tank" today and found this forum. What a nice bunch of folks & wealth of information!

My husband Alan and I are owned by and in love with our Cal 43 "Summer Wind" currently moored on the Columbia River between Vancouver, Washington and Portland, Oregon. Summer Wind is hull #6 of only 14 Cal 43s designed by Lapworth and built by Jensen in the early 1970s. Does anyone on this forum know where any of the other 13 might be?

Thanks!
Rhonda

Aloha and Welcome aboard!
Hope you can find all the information you need here. I was an Oregonian until joining the Navy in '63. I'll bet I know approximately where you are in relation to Jantzen Beach.
My current project boat's hull was built in Portland.
regards
