    So, while I have this thread high-jacked... A pic of the old girl from this summer. I think I'm going to pull the coamings off at haulout and refinish. I didn't use any InterStain on them when I finished them several years ago and they don't match the rest of the brightwork - and that color, I prefer. In a perfect world, New Found Metals would have made a portlight that matched the original cut-out, but the upgrade has been worth it for super-dry interior. Someday, she'll get new sails, but it isn't atop the priority list right now. Baggy as they are, the blow her along at hull speed just fine. She'll do...

    and last, Lucas from this summer. L'il Dawg - who we purchased in late August - got wet for just a couple racing weekends. It was SO cool watching him handle his own boat and go out on the water with his buddies and enjoy some independence. Spring Lake Yacht Club is super active and a terrific teaching organization that has pumped out some collegiate sailors. A couple Opti pix:

    In the first pic, impromptu sail with friends - just goofing around in their own boats. Then pix of first and last races at the end of summer. (Sail numbers came with the boat - we'll install over the winter)

    Rudder problem

    Pretty sure this isn't good. I do know that the mahogany swells once in water, but I don't think this kind of play has been in the mix before. Thoughts??

    there is a 10 second video here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/124380...dateposted-ff/

    New addition to the Williams' Livery. 1959 Lyman. Originally a runabout - per pic below. PO converted to a launch. Nice bones. Not sure what end result will be. The original midship helm is removed and she steers from the stern. May outfit with a 59'-ish era outboard. Seating is currently parallel to the rails. Might put perpendicular seating back in. TBD. Fun to play with.

    p.s. We named "her" Norman. We spend time every year on Squam Lake in N.H. where On Golden Pond was filmed. She looks like a Squam Lake boat. Squam => On Golden Pond => Norman Thayer => "Norman"
