Many of you will recall John's sailboat project. Remember, he acquired Blue Ribbon at the Moss Landing Harbor auction.
Here's the video I made about his acquisition more than a year ago.
Here are a few pictures showing some of the fabulous work he did on the boat.

Well, since we have been away from Blue Ribbon for nearly ten months, John decided he would find a new home for it. He let it go this past weekend to a fellow sailor down in Moss Landing. It broke his heart in many ways but we just couldn't see the sense in holding on to it under the current circumstances of him not getting to use it or work on it. The plan is to get another boat when we're up in British Columbia. So stay tuned to the next boat adventure!
Have you ever had to let go of a beloved object?
