Her Diamond, a 1991 Freedom 38 sailed by recent members Bob and Sheila Allenick, is the featured boat in the January, 2014 issue of Good Old Boat. Currently they cruise the Great Lakes but hope to head to bigger waters down the East Coast and Caribbean when they retire. If you have a subscription to GOB be sure to check out the article or pick up a copy. They plan to be at the Leamington Rendezvous where they will be glad to show her off.

Our old Harbor Report on Clapperton Island is full of nostalgia and memories. The segment on communications is just one wonderful example of the changes we’ve witnessed.
