WOW! The photo brings back a flood of memories--the old painbox. We bought Valkyrie from the Neal/Riley/Hartman trio in 1976, they continued to build the SDYC fleet with Goose and then got Nelson to design Blivit (which was unbeatable). Stella joined the fleet from SWYC, have not seen her in many years. Those were the days my friend, we started 40 + boats in 3 MORA classes every other weekend. Racing 25 foot boats in the Cabrillo series....well we have some sea stories, believe me.

We donated Valkyrie to Orange Coast in 1989, sounds like she had a long and productive life. She was strip-planked mahogany with glass outside. Carl Eichenlaub built an aluminum mast step structure after we found the bottom once too often in a Hot Rum race and broke the keelson.
