I had similar moments with Cap Glaeser sailing into anchorages and love reflecting back to those moments. Mostly now I appreciate how much trust he had in us as crew.
I remember well Cap Glaeser talking about the hurricane that your father was aboard for. It was pretty amazing and I think it was that trip where she was actually knocked down so that the yardarm was in the water. That prompted Cap to upgrade the main engine to a 8-71 Detroit so that he would have the HP to round up in the future if necessary. Wow, there have been some amazing adventures aboard the Schooner!
Thanks for joining and please post any pictures that you may have from your time aboard her.
