John Hellmuth's Echo, Pacific Dolphin # 251, Wilmette Harbor, Illinois  

John checked in on April 10, 2009. He is the current Fleet Captain of Wilmette Harbor's fleet of 15!!! Dolphins. Echo has had 5 owners and has spent all her life here at Wilmette Harbor. John bought her in 2005.

Here is a picture of Echo in one of those Lake Michigan breezes.

Wilmette Harbor is a tiny little harbor 16 miles north of downtown Chicago. Here is a picture of the harbor looking south down toward Chicago on the horizon. This is a super photo, I think.

Bumper boats anyone?

This is a small tighly packed harbor and the wise boat owner protects his boat. John sent in some other photos, a few of which have been digitally altered. I think this looks really cool. Here is one.

No question, Dolphins are even faster with good looking crew

End of season? or beginning?
