July 15, 2011. Brian Nilsson checked in as the new owner of Yankee #100. His email is below. We are standing by for more information about See Ya Sooner, and some pictures.

Hello, Ron.

I'm Brian Nilsson, new owner of Hull #100, "See Ya Sooner" ... bought from Chris Brown in Taos, New Mexico. I signed up for the newsletter, and would like to be added to the Members roster for the website. I'll also register for the forum and fill in the info, but I didn't know if I needed to be official first? Anyway, looking forward to the association with other owners.

Thanks

Brian

Hi, Ron,

Here's a pic of my #100 in water at Heron Lake, at New Mexico Sailing Club Marina ... I must say she's the sexiest boat in the marina.

Brian

July 28, 2011. Brian's been working hard as his picture above indicates. Yankee #100 is also a good example of the work that our tireless Dolphin Field Investigators (DFIs) do. We first found out about this boat in November, 2008. DFI Brian Henderson started it off with a field report (minor edits). The continuing trail of discovery is below. And, #100's new owner also joined the ranks of DFIs with a report locating two previously unknown Dolphins #142, and #152. Click on the hull numbers to go there.

Here is the trail -

November 12, 2008

Hi

My name is Brian Henderson; I have a DeFever 38 in Marina Cortez, San Diego.  Delphinidae is a couple of docks down from me.  I have always admired the Dolphins and wish I could fit in one, but I just don't think a Dolphin is in my future as I am a large, stiff jointed old guy.

Nevertheless, I am currently on "vacation" in San Carlos, Mexico (a resort area just north of Guayamas, Sonora) and have spotted a couple of Dolphins.  One is hull # 100 owned by Tom and his wife, whose name I do not remember.  It is docked three boats down from the guest dock I am staying at (on a friends boat).  I talked to Tom and he should be reporting in to this site with some info on his boat, so I will say no more about it except to say that it is a very nice and  clean looking little boat.

In the dry storage marina nearby (Marina "Seca") is hull number 238. It appears abandoned and is on a kinda rough trailer with flat tires.  The companionway boards have been removed and there is about a foot of water inside.  No name on the transom.  Mast is down.  Looks quite restorable, but would require quite a bit of work.  I have heard that it was in this same condition 5 years ago.  Trailer is licensed in Arizona and the boat has regatta plaques from 1972 and 1973 mounted next to the hull number plate.  I have pictures of the boat and will send when I get home to my own computer in San Diego in a couple of weeks.  I have not contacted the marina management to see if they know any more about this boat

March 7, 2011 Senior DFI Jonnie Walker (Yankee #227) sent in the following report (edited)

Hey Ron!

Hope the winter is treating you well...it was 80 here today. Over on Sailfar.net there is a guy who was cruising the Med, sold his boat there and flew to the Sea of Cortez...(La Paz maybe?) in Mexico. He bought a Southern Cross 35 and is working on getting it cruise ready. He noted on the SailNet thread that the other day he went for a day sail on...

" a BEUTIFUL little SailFar -style boat An S&S design 1969 vintage Dolphin 24 with a centreboard, trailerable."

I posted a question and asked the hull number...he posted back and said he thought it was #100 - which would match the website's story of #100 cruising in Mexico. Here's the thread http://sailfar.net/forum/index.php/topic,1099.100.html, and his blog http://svnanna.wordpress.com/

Thought you should know.

Jonnie

Someday, we have to get Tom to check in...

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

April 5, 2011. Senior DFI Jonnie Walker reports that he had another SailFar Forum exchange with "Chris" who has the Southern Cross 35 and went sailing on #100. it produced the following additional information.:

"The owner I met and sailed with is named Chris. He bought the boat in San Carlos a few months ago I think. He's based in New Mexico. Nice guy too."

So it seems that Tom and his wife sold the boat to Chris a few months ago. Someday, we have to get Chris to check in. Stay tuned...BTW, this San Carlos is the one on the Pacific Coast/Baha.

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

June 27, 2011 - Chris has checked in (minor edits)

Ron...I am the Chris that now owns Hull #100. I ran across the entry that you hoped I'd check in. I now have her in Taos, NM. Her Name is See ya Sooner.
Chris Brown

March 24, 2012. Ok, let's get back on track. See ya Sooner has her own page now - click here to go there. We got the following email from Brian - minor edit

Hi, Ron ...

Thanks for the earlier info. You were right, the major leak(s) are in the cockpit drains, which I'm replacing. I am now in Corpus Christi, TX, with the boat and have renamed her "Silver Sage." I will have her at the Corpus Christi Marina and plan to get her sailing in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks again.

Brian

Webmaster Note: Brian and I had an exchange about a major leak problem he was having. This might be of some interest to others so this exchange has become a start on a new page in the Technical Section - Leaks. Click here to go there

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

August 31, 2015 Your webmaster was following up on leak problems for another Dolphin owner and stumbled across Brian's exchange on this subject. I noticed it has been a while since we've heard from him - so we checked. Here's his reply - edited. (Jerry Slaughter, ROWDY, also in Corpus Christie, basically told me the same thing - too hot to sail....)

Hi, Ron ...

Yeah, it has been awhile. I'm here at my ranch, Silver Sage, North of Taos, New Mexico. In summer its cool here. I go to Corpus Christi and sail "Silver Sage" in winter. ... Works out.

Brian
