COMMENTS

Built of molded plywood and featuring beautiful teak work in the cockpit this boat was built as the committee boat for a small but active Yingling fleet in Venice, Florida. Her light-weight careful construction resulted in a very fast and sea-kindly boat.


FOOTNOTE

A key aspect of my aprentice / master relationship with John was that I really really really didn't want to have to ask him things. I don't know quite why it was so important to me to but it was. I can remember countless times when in desperation I would be walking to his office - with each step this self impossed pressure mounting - only to have as my hand grabbed the door knob the answer would come to me. Great teachers get the best out of people - tis always been thus.
