    Geoff writes: No non skid yet, soon tho. We have ground the decks back to square one -- 40 years of deck paint, or so it looked like. We exposed old plywood patches, but on the whole it was quite solid. We are in the process of bogging the whole deck now, filling in cracks & holes, etc. Once that is faired off, we will apply about four coats of epoxy high build and the non-skid on top of that. VOILAH!

    IT WAS A CALIF BOAT!

    Here is documentation that Uhuru was originally from California. The sticker expired in 1987. Back then, they were good for a year, so it would be pretty accurate to say the boat sailed from California about 1986 or '87. As soon as they can be edited, we will post Geoff's latest photo record of his progress.

    Post ORIGINAL OWNER OF UHURU APPEARS

    UHURU's original owner writes:

    >>>>>>
    Hi Ron,

    You have this guy with a photo gallery, under GEOFF's AUSSIE PHOTO GALLERY.
    He thinks it was sailed from California. Would you please pass this email onto him and tell him it indeed was...by me. I was 29 at the time and I took off from Ventura CA and spent about four years in the South Pacific doing the "Coconut Run." I sold UHURU in Brisbane, Australia.

    I have LOTS of South Pacific photos of Uhuru. Mind you, I see some extensive cabin top modifications done. I beefed up Uhuru, but she was pretty much original.

    Here is a close up photo of UHURU's builder's plate. Just to verify the hull number.
