This is her third naming. Her first name was Seawolf, her second was Kvetch IV.

the fence that keeps people like me out of the yard  a glimpse of the mast in the yard

I made my way over to the boatyard and took pictures of the lettering. The mast appears to have already been rigged.


  1. Denise, I just saw you pictures of the finished product. Beautiful! I am now going to paint my cheoy lee green, like yours! what paint did you use?

    I’m begining to think mine will never be splashed; in the process of taking all the cabin teak down to bare wood and re-varnishing. Ugh.
    Need Mannie back. or 2 Mannies.
    best regards,
    David OBrien

  2. David,

    My painter used Sterling paint, which you can buy from Fisheries Supplies out of Seattle. It’s similar to an Awlgrip.

    You know what, I felt that way about my boat tons of times. It will happen, just keep going. I did it without a Mannie, too!

    Take care,
