At the helm is friend George, who blasted into the marina one afternoon in a big motor cruiser, and went on to a 53-some foot Amel sailboat in PR. Understand they are back in the States now...somewhere in Florida.
He and his wife took us in for a couple of nights right after the explosion, as we were not allowed back onboard for many days while the investigatory teams did their forensics.
Loved the Fingal. Great sailing characteristics. An old one-lunger Bukh diesel engine that didn't like to start in cold weather.
Down-below was spartan, and in the end it wasn't worth the complete refit she would have needed. But, she had a fantastic spirit and we always felt safe even during 11:30PM sails out to the bridge tunnel and back after work. She's in new hands now, down in Florida last I knew. Sorry to say she looked worse for the wear, but hoping the new owner will bring her back.
