    A friend was going through his fathers documents and came across a file with a brochure for the Ariel and the bill of sail for the family childhood boat. Thought they might be of interest.

  4. who's online

    Believe I've noticed that for the last two weeks we've lost 50 to 75% of our usual guest company. Hard to guess where our normal guests hail from? A significant number aren't coming in any more!:(

  6. what is this boat?

    Ran across it a couple nights ago while checking Craigs list (habit) It's listed as a pearson 24, but every pearson 24 I've been able to find dopesn't look the same, the lark has the flush deck, so that's ruled out, and the 'pearson 24' has a hull that's more similar to the Ariel. Neither have...
