  1. 12 Meter, I've definitely taken a look through the blog, thanks for that, Wayne was great at documenting everything! Certainly to be commended some of the work that he did, In time I plan to record a similar blog about her current resto - time always seems to be the enemy. Yes, Waylon was purchased as a hull from cooper - it was built in a barn in langley by my dad and his friend Doug Brealey - launched in 74' my dad was the original owner and lived aboard in false creek for 5 years before marrying my mom. I was born in 91' so this is all way before my time. I do plan to rac
  2. SloopJonB There were some considerable efforts made to restore some aspects and change some interior layout. some rot was repaired well. other sections were missed.

I found her a couple of years ago and am in the final stages of reviving her from the zombie fleet, she now is named Waylon once again. I would love to hear stories of her earlier life, if anyone could comment.
