This time you guys get one video from Ravenswing in Mexico, and one from the boat shop back here in California.
Here’s the final big work push on Ravenswing at Cabrales Boatyard in Puerto Penasco. Want to ride along in a huge Travelift crane? Well just have a watch here…
(PS, the handsome white-locks dude is my Y2k co-worker Tom, who convinced his dear wife to drive south from Scottsdale into the desert to visit a boat sitting in the dirt. SOOOO good to catch up with Laura & Tom!
In this one, the restored Lido 14 sailboat goes to a new owner in Newport, CA. There are very active Lido fleets in Southern California, so I figured the boat should probably head back to the land where she was built. I didn’t get much response advertising here in the SF Bay Area, but once I let folks know delivery was available on my way through to Mexico, it was easy to find a buyer down south. And the orange ski boat finally got finished up, just in time for our kids’ visit from Denver. Griffin, Taylor and their Goldador (Lab x Golden Retriever) Goose will be playing on the CO lakes with their new-old boat now. It looks pretty good for 52 years old!
So while we sit here making boat videos, we’re on pins & needles with the wildfire situation in the Sierra. Wishing strength and fair wind to everyone in harms way. The climate has changed, people :(
