Detailing Destination

28 January 2014 | Bellingham
Don/Fog 39 degrees
Our son Bob, who works in Portland doing yacht services, fiberglass repair and detailing, gave us a Christmas present of a complete detail of Destination. His work is meticulous and wonderfully done, though we greatly underestimated how long it would take. It is always wonderful to learn more about the history of your boat. After compounding, we discovered faint lettering on the stern announcing that she is indeed a Lacoste 43S.E. - Yachting France. Her previous name was OPAA I and she was based in San Francisco before she moved to the Pacific Northwest.

Happy New Year!

We have started this blog to entertain ourselves and our friends about our adventures on s/v Destination during the coming years. Janet and I (and Cory our dog) really enjoy this boat and hopefully this will allow us to share our enjoyment with you...
