Hello to all,
About 45 years ago I bought $2 worth of plans from the Douglas Fir Plywood
Association. 5 years later, and with much trepidation, VALKYRIE was launched in Marion, MA.
After sailing her for 15 years and teachng my three children
to sail, I sold
her and moved on to bigger boats.
Over the years I've sailed the waters of New England
, as far as Grand Manan to the north and Bermuda
to the south. Yearly cruises along the Maine
coast bring back fond memories
Now my children
are grown and married, and the list of grandchildren keeps growing. I'm refurbishing another Thunderbird, hopefully to be able to share the love of the sea with the new generation.
In the new project
, I have many questions. I look forward to getting help from all.
In return I'll share some of what I've learned (most of it the hard way
) as it seems I can help you, too.
