KNEWSLETTER - Vol. 65
Greetings!
Gotta love our Bay Area "beautiful" summer weather! Like it or not, the rest of the country is suffering through three digit temperatures and here we are suiting up to go out for a sail. We do hope you and your boat are keeping cool in the sunny spots, are properly battened down in the blustery bits and enjoying everything in between! September and October are right around the corner and they deliver some of the best days out on the Bay. Are you ready? Give us a call today!

WINNER!
Congratulations Steve Nelson!
This is a picture of Steve in Bora Bora aboard a boat he completed in the your yard before it was KKMI. It was a 62’ steel hull ketch built by Steve, his sister and her husband.
 
The photo is pretty extraordinary considering it was taken with actual film. It was taken by a traveling photographer they met while cruising. He took a bunch of pictures and wrote an article about cruisers in Bora Bora in 1987. It was featured in the March 1988 issue of Sailing magazine. He had climbed up the mast and was standing on the spreaders. 

If anyone has a copy of the magazine, let us know!
