Welcome

My love of sailing started many years ago. 

The source... my Norwegian grandmother who raised me. She taught me many things in my first few years and told me that I needed to be self-sufficient because no one else was going to take care of me.

Seafarer Yachts

Puffin a Swiftsure 33 was built in 1960 in Amsterdam Holland by De Vries Lentsch for Seafarer Yachts of Huntington New York 

The G is for Gerhardt who I got to spend an afternoon talking about their major yachts they built . He laughed and said they built the swiftsures in a little back corner of the yard. They built a little over 100 before Faulker Aircraft finished the rest of the production

Puffin 1980 - 2000

The Puffin

The Puffin, not to be confused with the other Puffin's out there built by Seafarer Yachts of Huntington , New York

1991 to infinity and beyond
