Old Bob on Christina II

Old Bob on Christina II

Bob Colquhoun owner and skipper of Golden West I promised him a sail for his 81 birthday and pulled out all the stops to get him out on Christina II for a sail under the Forth Road Bridge.  Christina's longest sail for some 10 years she ran a dream.

    how far east did you go
    Liberty we were limited by the low tides and only went out and under the road bridge then back to Charleston.  Bob struggles with arthritis so getting him on and off can only be done when he can step aboard.  

    Hoping to beach her again on saturday to finish painting the underside and hopefully get some undercoat on the hull.
