Duckling was one of the boats that appeared in Dyke Williams' article in Good Old Boat and this is the picture of Duckling Dyke used. Jim is busy restoring a 1959 Shasta Trailer in preparation for a motoring cruise across the US! Webmaster Note: I wonder if they have these kinds of websites too? Jim says Duckling got her name based upon the way she smoothly bobs along in rough water. Her former name under a previous owner was Pecas II

On September 28, 2008, Jim responded to our request to help locate Dick Loomis (Yankee # 212) that happens to be sitting on Jim's Dolphin trailer. Jim's been involved with restoring land cruisers recently and sent in the following email:

We've gotten wildly sidetracked by "Land Yachts" these days.     My wife just isn't too keen on sailing, mostly I think because the arrival time is so unpredictable. So we're playing with an Airstream trailer these days. Retirement is just a few months away, so there should be more time for playing with toys. Many of my retired friends say that's a myth. I should check in with your great web-site now and then. So many toys, so little time. . ..
