Favorite Tabor Boy moment
There were many: the 1970 America's Cup off Newport; reaching down LI Sound in a late November, near gale, taffrail log spinning wildly, the first day of our departure for Charleston, SC; powering through the East River at night, steak dinner; anchoring off uninhabited, Bahamian Is.; cold water pouring down the aft hatch, waterspouts off Cape Hatteras; jumping off the topsail yard in Nassau; sailing through Nav-Opts, at night off Jacksonville; Cap on the corner of the bridge, leaning into the corner, calmly, but clearly giving orders; Jay Parkers' steady way; great captain; great crew, great friends.

Hi Chan,

Yes actually, Bruce is my dad. Would you like me to pass on an email address to him so you can get in touch?

Chan -

Glad you're alive & well. I lost track of Spicer - had my Christmas card returned. Have't heard from Woodman in a while.
