Juts received these pics of the plans for "the old girl", Sea Jay, an Endurance 37. She was built in the late 70s by Knysna Boatyard for my "other father". I was at her launch, the very first off the newly re-established line. Sea Jay was cutter rigged.
I miss her terribly. She was a real seaman's (ungendered) boat. She looked after us in some horrible conditions off the Cape coast, and time at anchor or the mooring was just as magical.


Here she is on the hard at Simon's Town yacht club. But the last time I walked that ground was when we scattered my other father's ashes at sea, half an hour or so out to sea.
