1979 Article

From my very dusty archives:
Spyglass was a rigging guide published for a number of years in Alameda California in the '70s
The 382 was the boat of the show for the Alameda in the water show in early 1978. I signed on the bottom line at that show.
Coast Starlight Ltd. was launched 9/1/78.
Reese River Belle was being outfitted in John Berry's yard in 1979. Bill Kohlmoss headed out the gate later that year but returned because of some structural problems. I remember seeing it on the hard prior to the repairs but lost contact with Bill thereafter.
I mounted my halyard winches on the deck. The Simpson Lawrence SL555 manual anchor windlass was just terrible. Mine went to the scrap yard.
