Ah, with today’s Northwest wind Sjogin‘s stove drew well. Evidence of same below:
One of the Beaton Irregulars launched his 1956 Pacemaker Spearfish today after a 3 week refit. She will be kept in a covered shed in the water up at Johnson Bros. in Bay Head. Bob assumes a Captain Morgan pose next to his 1946 or so Dodge pickup.
Finally here’s a photo of the Herreshoff Columbia model Dinghy that Tom Beaton and I built in the early 80’s. To the left is the Beaton built Flatfish Charlotte, just returned from a Summer of sailing in Brooklin, Maine. In the background is one of the Beaton Sneakboxes, once one of the hot racing classes on Barnegat Bay. They still race, though with reduced numbers.
Another fine Sunday morning at Beaton’s
