Well TaoJones I did not know they had been awarded the trophy so thanks very much for posting
this as it adds the finishing touch to the story as we knew it.
By chance my wife and I were visiting Port Nelson in our own boat for maintenance
and Galenaia was against the yard's dock
when we arrived. We spent several days rafted alongside her and met Tony of course as we clambered back and forth over little Galenaia to get ashore, we being 40 foot so overhanging her alot
. His wifes boat was a few berths away in the marina.
There is a photo
I have just found of the two boats at Cruising Club of America
. I think that photo
was taken while we were in Nelson or after we had left as after he was finished at the yard he was moved from under us to a berth beside So Long.
