Previous Boat: TILLY WHIM

Tilly Whim was a Laurent Giles sloop built in 1947. She needed a lot of work, but we thought we could fix her up and continue the dream. She was beautiful and a joy to sail. We even raced in the Master Mariner's on San Francisco Bay with only the two of us for crew. She was a lot smaller than our previous boat, but we fixed her up beautifully down below with refrigeration, a 3 burner propane stove, and double bunk up forward. Unfortunately we could never cure the garboard leak, so we reluctantly decided to swallow the anchor, get back to "reality", and be responsible members of society.
