Good to hear from you - hope all is well. The new name is good - a
very proud name. Happy to know she is still sailing and well cared
for. That old wood-fired heater was a joke - worst thing aboard.
Ever try to light a fire while slamming to windward? Once, on the
way up the coast, it got really cold, and it was impossible to light
a fire in that rotten wood stove. Everything was wet from weeks of
fog. Pounding into waves, soggy matches and charcoal bouncing all
over the cabin. Saved myself from hypothermia by cramming into the
engine box and wrapping myself around the warm diesel. It was a bad
Wow - real electrical systems, good batteries, modern sails, and a
dodger. Big changes from when I first pushed her out into the bay -
no engine, nothing electrical. I wonder if she was the last
engineless BCC. There’s probably one more out there somewhere.
I often think of you guys and the boat - particularly when I run
across some old part in my junk box, or catch a whiff of a kerosene
Haven’t been back to the west coast since I finished the 49-pac for
Ka’iulani - almost 7 years - but if the chance ever comes up, I’d

We certainly enjoyed your pictures and think of you
frequently. Now we can think of your good times in
Mexico. As you know we renamed #4 after a mark of
the San Francisco YRA racing course, Anita Rock. (Our
Mother is Anita, no further comment.)
We’ve made some changes interior wise, new sails,
furlers on both headsails, hard vang, placed the
Propane tank between the boomkin and added a Cape
Horn. Added 4 gel cells and wired 12v
lighting/recepticles. New stove and trying to
convert heater to diesel. Moved dink up to the
foredeck and added Forest Green Dodger. Good Luck and
when your in SF lets go sailing.
