What a coincidence I've found this add! Its a great boat. I sailed on it with John at RYC. I remember he did a lot of good work to it.
I was wondering what happened to it after he gave it back.

Ive actually applied to SUNY Maritime. Hopefully my application gets accepted. I think it's a cool school.
