Northern Yacht Restoration

I happened to come across Northern Yacht Restoration web site today.
Northern Yacht Restoration, a DBA of Lackey Sailing, LLC, is dedicated to the preservation of classic sailboats and powerboats through restoration, rebuilding, unique projects, and thorough documentation with a steady Internet presence. One boat at a time, we strive to raise the bar in quality and return a neglected classic to Bristol condition--at surprisingly reasonable cost. Let us show you how.
Like so many small business, Northern Yacht Restoration and Lackey Sailing grew from humble and almost accidental beginnings. Though Tim's always been interested and involved in the marine industry, from driving yacht club launches to a 4-year stint at Maine Maritime to building hulls at Hinckley to 12 years as a marine surveyor, it was a trial-by-fire entry into the minor refinishing of his sound, yet tired, 1967 Pearson Ensign in 1998 that began the path down the road that has led here today.

Tim's work looks first-rate to me.

Santa Cruz, California

On Saturday, June 6th, 2009 - I visited Santa Cruz California.

This looks like a good place to anchor off the pier - although it appeared to be a bit rolly - and potentially too open to the West for safe anchoring during winter storms.

Capitola, California

On Saturday, June 6th, 2009 - I visted Capitola, California. What a beautiful little town. I need to do a bit more research, but I have quite a few photos to post later!

Costa Rica

I came across this site today: Nosara Yoga Institute , located in Costa Rica - definitely something to keep on my list of places to visit when I sail into the waters of Costa Rica!
