Endeavour and Plattner's Visione. LOAs of 130' and 147' repectively. Looking at

Visione from my office, the J is on charter. At the Newport Shipyard.

If that's City Dock, where's the Naval Academy?

What going on with Endeavor besides chartering. I know it was owned by the one time CEO of Tyco. Who has been in some trouble with the law. Will they ever races her again?

This is the second trip to Newport for Visione. The first time was two years to do warranty work on the mast. Once at Newport Shipyard, the mast was unstepped at sent up the bay to Bristol via barge cuz the stick wouldn't fit under the Pell Bridge.

OK, Scot, we're getting tired of waiting. Where's my hat?

 

I think the team generally agrees with me that:

A: It's Hasso's Visione, not one of Doug Lord's weird pondcraft with their dubious (but patented) appendages.

B: It's Newport RI, not Murmansk, or your own homeport of North Tijuana either.

C: The J in question is Endeavour, not Shamrock (wrong cove stripe and jumpers) or Velsheda (wrong deckhouses and winches). And it's not HWSNBN's Murrelet for that matter, either. Unless he's painted it blue.

 

C'mon. Front up, mate.
