Mo Bettah Too, US ????
from Facebook (2021)
August, from Facebook (2021) "I finally
managed to get this Nelson/Marek 1/2 Tonner bought today after nearly 5 months
of trying. Now I just have to get it 100 miles down the coast to home. It has
reputedly hit 12 knots so it might be a fast trip if I get a nice Northwesterly.
On the sail test today we stayed at 6 knots beating into a very light breeze
while trying to figure out sail trim - it's a very quick boat. I included a
shot of the underbody to show that it is not the usual distorted IOR stern -
that probably explains the speed. These are the best pics I have right now.
Don't know why the stern shot rotated - I can't correct it. The boat is not
a zombie but it is the far end of scruffy so I've got lots of projects ahead
of me. I'll post the interesting stuff as it happens. It is one of the best
constructed boats I've ever seen - the interior structure, bulkheads etc. are
so well done and finished that they look almost like a liner. Not a hint of
a soft spot or delam anywhere on the hull or deck. It seems to be a well known
boat around the Salish Sea but I'm having trouble finding anything specific
about it. I'd really appreciate it if anyone can advise who built it (someone
in Seattle as best I can determine), any specs on it or who can put me in touch
with the original owner so I can glean some data on it."
