Hi Luis, Welcome to the BCC forum. You will be amazed at the amount of information you can get from the people who own these boats. I am sending you this email to let you know that you can email me direct if you have any questions about the building of the boat or other such questions. Oh, you may not know but I used to own the Sam L. Morse Company so I know about the way they are put together.

Any questions you have that would be answered by an opinion, I suggest you send them to this forum because you will receive many various responses and you will have to choose which one suits your needs best.

Ahh Anhinga! I have two hard copy photos of her, from way back when - I had inquired about her maybe 10 years ago or so… I still look at those pics as inspiration for what a fully painted BCC will look like… I plan to paint alot. Are there any recent pics you can share?

Congratulations on the win!



I would like to know every thing from her previous life.

She is freshening up now and then I’ll promise to post some real photos on the Gallery.

In the mean time, as you ask, I attach some photos taken when I was inquiring her some months ago.

Wow, great pics… thanks for sharing. I’ll try and get you these 2 pics I have. Drop me an email off-forum.

Thank you Roger.

I saw your Melanesian Adventure and I know the only cat we can see in Mat??s book is yours on page 166 looking to us from Xiphias bow.

In the next months (years probably) I?m compulsorily dedicated to restore Anhinga, hull 83. Hopefully, this is one of the factory finished boats, with the standard layout, and previous owners didn?t added many gadgets so I don?t have many holes to fill.

I like boats, but I think the BCC is a work of art. I thank you for taken part on her production.
