July 2010 New Home for this website! Not all the full sized pictures are loaded yet!
In a fit of insanity, I aquired a sailboat. Years ago I had a small sailboat and always wanted another. Well, the chance to get one cheap came up, I now live fairly close to the Cheasapeak, so I figured Why Not.
As to the name Rummage, the guy I bought the boat from had bought it at a church rummage sale... What else could I name it?
I figured on doing the bottom painting at the boatyard and then moving the boat to my house. I found a used boat trailer that needed new wheels and some modifications to support the boat. It looked do-able.
But, of course, things just didn't work out. I got bottom paint (cheap) but found I just didn't have the time to get to the boatyard and do the work. I was paying for storage and not getting any use out of the boat.
A friend of mine expressed some interest in the boat. He felt he could modify the trailer and we struck a deal. The only catch was that he was in North Carolina and I was in Maryland. We finally got the trailer modifications done at my house. I hauled the trailer to the boat yard and got the Dolphin loaded. It actually fit! My friend drove up from North Carolina a few days later and hauled the boat back to his house.
I figured that was the last of my boat projects....
