I spotted a BCC near marker “137” mile 288 on the ICW in Masonboro, NC. Looked like a BCC, but then I noticed one spreader only. But looked too large to be a Falmouth Cutter… perhaps a 26’? Had the green stripe and wood bulwarks like the SLM BCC’s. She was tied in a slip, and I quickly passed her by, didnt get a name.
Anyways… always exciting to spot a BCC.
Which reminds me there is another BCC a few days behind me in NC making the trip south. She is ‘Ma Muse’ from Quebec. I hope he and I meet up here along the way…
Perhaps it was a Shannon 28.
Yes, I’ve passed by that boat a couple times over the last 15 years.
When I met up with the late AO Halsey in Charleston, he said it was the same
model as his 26 ft Cutter “Polaris Jack”. These boats were built by a local
NC builder who lives near Masonboro Inlet.
You saw Emily. Built at Russell Yachts in Morehead City. 26’LOD
Ok thanks for the ID on that vessel.
Off subject…Mark, do you still have 2 qts of Sterling top coat?
I’m anchored in Charleston, for an undetermined amount of time… and I’m just itching to get back to painting and varnishing
Yes, I still have the 2 qts of Sterling top coat. I also have the catalyst and
that special adder for cold weather application. The stuff is in my garage, so
its been climate-controlled.
I can’t remember how much I paid, but I can look for the receipt.
Make me an offer, and I can mail them to you. My email is email@example.com
