  5. Was there on Southsea beach(with about 250,000 others!) when she came back home with Alec Rose. She looked a bit more worse for wear on that day! Was an amazing day and one I will never forget. Still have his book which he signed.

  9. Absolutely beautiful I have a 1962 y'all that is just as pretty and she needs a little makeup but still waiting to get her up on the water and hopefully she'll look is just as pretty she seems to be very sturdy I'm dry as a bone so I hope I made the right choice. Good luck my friend and hope to see you out there somewhere.

  11. I loved the lion roaring at the beginning of the video. This is one of the most beautiful yachts in the world. I can’t imagine a more fitting conclusion to such a violent decade. Sail Away!

  16. Interviewer (3:50):
    "So what is it, that's special about this boat, Steve?"
    Steve:"I dunno, It gets in your blood."
    It's just a wooden boat to most people but to me, and the others that worked on it, and Alan, and my wife and, it's just something special,
    and erm, it's just something that you just can't explain really…
    …some people like old cars…
    … I like old boats…
    …and this is a special old boat.
    Interviewer (4:32) "…and what does she sail like?"
    Cap'n: "…same as any other boat. Sound's some's good, some's bad, some's 'brilliant… some's orrible"
    "She doesn't point very well, you can't go astern in any direction you wanna (want to) go…
    but you get the right wind and she's the same as any other boat. She's a joy to sail…"
