"Sorcery's beginnings 1983 in the Sorcery Yacht shed. Very few men build their own yacht of this magnitude as Jacob Wood did. Working with many suppliers around the world to get it right, Jake did it at his business Republic Fastener where his patented aero nuts fueled this program to build his new $3m yacht.

12 April, comment and picture from Facebook "I was down at the Port of Redwood City for the first time in quite a while, yesterday. Yup, there's Sorcery, still sitting there. It's been ten? Fifteen?  GOD, has it been Twenty years she's been sitting there? I doubt she ever sails, but she's not quite landfill yet. She's still floating and still has a rig."

May, Facebook, "Was damaged on the bow by an errant boat in January’s windstorm. Hauled out to assess."
