Blast From the Past

We are at the PNW Westsail Rendezvous this weekend, in Pt. Townsend, WA. To mark the occasion here is something for you Westsail nostalgics... Ken, a customer that my wife deals with at the boat yard, gave us this original Westsail sales brochure. He found it while cleaning out his house. Ken and his wife liveaboard in Hawaii on their Farr 39 that they built some years ago. The date on the brochure is January 1974. Reading it sorta transports you back to when things were trippy and cool. Where the in thing back then was to "dropout". Dig the hair! Checkout the polyester threads! Dude! Right On! And this was before disco!! (click on the slideshow to view the pictures)
