Marina Swap Meet Treasures

Today was the annual Marina Swap Meet - where "treasures of the bilge" may oft' be found - such as this book I picked up for $1 - by the world famous small boat sailor / and master ship wright - that documents the construction of his Lyle Hess designed vessel Taleisin - upon which he and his wife (Lin) circumnavigated. It was serendipitous - for I have met them both - and have sat in the warm cabin of Taleisin on a cold winter day when she was tied to the dock on Lake Union in Seattle for a boat show event.
