Jim Sutro's Duckling, Yankee # 84, San Francisco Bay, California  
   

Duckling was one of the boats that appeared in Dyke Williams' article in Good Old Boat and this is the picture of Duckling Dyke used. Jim is busy restoring a 1959 Shasta Trailer in preparation for a motoring cruise across the US! Webmaster Note: I wonder if they have these kinds of websites too? Jim says Duckling got her name based upon the way she smoothly bobs along in rough water. Her former name under a previous owner was Pecas II

The following are quotes from Jim that appeared in the Good Old Boat article

************************************

On September 28, 2008, Jim responded to our request to help locate Dick Loomis (Yankee # 212) that happens to be sitting on Jim's Dolphin trailer. Jim's been involved with restoring land cruisers recently and sent in the following email:

We've gotten wildly sidetracked by "Land Yachts" these days.     My wife just isn't too keen on sailing, mostly I think because the arrival time is so unpredictable. So we're playing with an Airstream trailer these days. Retirement is just a few months away, so there should be more time for playing with toys. Many of my retired friends say that's a myth. I should check in with your great web-site now and then. So many toys, so little time. . ..
