After lusting after the BCC for some twenty years, and chasing down a hull for two, I’m proud to announce the acquisition of BCC #13 - “My Way”. She comes with an interesting story, as, it seems, do all BCC’s: part of the romance of the vessel. She was sold as a hull/deck kit in 1976: one of the first year’s output from Sam L. Morse Co: done so to generate initial cash flow for the Company. An ambitious East Coast owner thought he could finisher her himself, and after many years, gave up, and sold the hull and what little has been finished, to George Fralic, of Dandridge, Tennessee. Apparently, George had her finished by a shipwright in Morehead City, NC., and BCC “My Way” was finally splashed, for the first time, in 2002. George sailed her up to Nova Scotia, his ancestral home, but age and mobility has forced him to hang up his belaying pins. My Way is very clean and lightly used. Her interior, while certainly not to SLM standards, is better finished than some of the “owner-finished” versions. I hope to improve the interior and bring her up to SLM standards, over time. I’m thrilled to join the small but tight fraternity of BCC owners, and the forum. For a while, My Way can probably still be seen on Yachtworld.com, for anyone interested.
