    PB, there's an archery store next door to turners in fountain valley. Brookhurst and Garfield. They have an indoor range where you can try before you buy. Also mile square park has a public outdoor archery range.

  6. Hello, I read you owned the Whiting 1/4 tonner Afternoon Delight. Do you maybe have a picture of the boat? I am very interested. Also check my 1/4 ton Facebook-page! Regards, Hylke Steensma

      Thanks for the picture of Afternoon Delight. Loose Change does ring a bell somewhere... I met a guy via Facebook who is refitting a Pet 25 1/4 tonner. Could you mail the pic to hylke_steensma@yahoo.com? Thanks!

      1/4 ton rules forever ;-)

    John MacLaurin. RIP.

    One of the good guys of sailing. Six Pendragons by my count, 5 Davidsons and 1 Farr 40. Throw in a Davidson 30 (morc) an ultimate 30 of sorts and when I first raced against him, a Peterson 25 1/4 ton (shadowfax). Sailed on the 1st two Pens' and the morc stardancer. The purple boat was the most fun (before the keel was put on) especially in light air and chop. Was untouchables! I remember the Cal YC juniors ask on a whim if they could use Pen' II for their junior cruise to Catalina. "Just have it back by Wednesday night".

    Extending the boom another 5' wouldn't hurt either. how do the big sails affect the balance?

    SB/KH #45

    Yep, it requires a match and a little lighter fluid!

    Star Eyed Stella was at SWYC in the late '70s. would be very surprised if she was still there. Mmmm well into the 80's at least It's still there. Looking a little beat up. And not from sailing!
