Justin Flagg's Onward, Yankee #207, Bellport, New York - updated February 25, 2017  

August 12, 2016 Justin Flagg checking is as the new owner of Yankee #207. Below is his email and introductory picture.

Hi Ron,

Just wanted to give you an update on Yankee #207. I bought the boat from Graham Coates last August, and have been doing extensive work on her over the winter and spring. Have removed and re-sealed all the deck fittings, refinished the brightwork, replaced the plumbing, repaired and reorganized the electricals, replaced the cabin cushions, and made various other small repairs.

She finally hit the water last week and took her first sail in the Great South Bay on Long Island's South Shore to her new home off of Bellport, NY. Attached is a picture of her at her new mooring.

Looking forward to some great sailing for the rest of this season. Will probably move to some interior work over the coming winter, and possibly a new paint job for the bottom and top sides.

Postscript August 17, 2016 - I'm definitely going to keep her name until I have a chance to repaint the bottom and topsides. Then I will probably change it. I'll update you when that happens.

February 25, 2017. Justin responded to a What's Up request, and a recruiting effort to get Onward up to the New England Championships this summer in Camden, Maine http://dolphin24.org/ccc2017.html

Hi Ron,

Onward is doing well - made it in at the end of last season, hoping to get her back in the water in late Spring this year. Long list of small fixes and tweaks, want to tackle the trim in the cabin, and the biggest task before launching is a fresh coat of bottom paint.

I would absolutely love to take part in this (NE Championships), but alas, I have prior commitments that weekend. I generally don't have enough time to get up and back, but in future years would be very interested in crewing for anyone who needs an extra hand.

Thanks for reaching out.

Best, Justin
