Stunning Bay Area Refurbished Vessel
From today's 'Lectronic Latitude comes word that a massive eighteen-year re-fitting of an absolutely gorgeous 1939 English-built wooden schooner is now complete:

"After enduring an exhaustive 18-year refit, the magnificent 103-ft schooner Eros (ex-Fair Sarae) was turning heads on the Bay last week when owners Bill and Grace Bodle took her out for a shakedown cruise."

Man, there is something about a negative sheerline and an older sailplan I just love on a larger boat. Sublime.

Eros was at the Master Mariners Wood Boat show this year. It is an amazing boat. Prior to the show it was berthed at Sugar Dock on the SanteFe Channel, right after the show she went south for some work, good to see her back. I will be sailing out of the SF Channel this weekend and will get another photo or two if she is there.

( We have two identical Crowinshield schooners here: "Fame" and "Fortune") :D

I think your eye for authenticity was honed up there on the 'snakes forum. :cheers:

Typing of the bay. I was there this weekend. Oh how I miss the weather, and sailing there. To bad the Bahamas weren't 42 miles away.;).........i2f

That Dink looks bloody awful! They should have left it on the dock.

Why doesnt someone invent a nice, beautiful dink that has soft squishy non scratching sides and a colapsable OB?

It looks like a pimple on a models face.

I was driving from SFO to Hayward about noon. I was hoping one of those boats near the bridge was you, and himself. It was a gorgeous day for sure.........i2f

Sailed the Scottish cutter Gratitude from Sweden to Denmark last weekend. She is a fishingcutter built 1903 owned by the Swedish Cruisingass. We have 3 of them one built 1980 from sailplans of the 1903 one but blown up a bit so she is bigger and weighs 150tons Gratitude at 100ton is faster. What a joy to to participate in sailing and docking her at any port the quay is loaded with people. They are used as schoolships to teach youngens seamnship and how to care for an wooden boat./Harry
