Weatherbird has sold

E-mail Print PDF
Weatherbird has sold. She sold to a fellow by the name of Peter Rackliffe of Northport, ME, which is all of 11.2 miles from where I bought her in Camden, so she really has gone home. Peter has rebuilt many wooden boats professionally, and will be finishing off what I've started on Weatherbird - she'll be truly gorgeous when he's done. And from what I gather he's planning for her to be his personal boat, she's not being fixed up 'on spec'.

We will miss her, no question, but are very grateful that she's gone on to another good home where she'll be treated in the manner to which she's become accustomed!


Doug Heckrotte, Quetzal's owner, has offered to take over as webmaster of the LeComte Owner's site. Thanks, Doug! Given that I've (Chris) been busy elsewhere, and no longer own a LeComte (although I obviously still love them), this is very helpful of him, and should be very good for the site as he gets his feet wet and figures out how to maintain things. I'll still help out as I'm able, but since that's proven to be sparse in recent times, this is very good news.

Thanks again, Doug!

Thanks for the confidence, Chris.  I shall be climbing the learning curve as quickly as practicable.
