Over the weekend, I finally was able to get some old paper work from some of Sweet Pea’s background. She has had four previous names. Irish Sea, Solitude, Regal Run and SeaGal. And now Sweet Pea! So we will of course have a ceremony and do this right.
Its always interesting to see some older photos, and things all make more sense. Like, it did have a rail on her, which we are going to re install. Also one heck of a 1980’s color thing there happening. Looks like a late 60’s Barracuda Stripe kit.
It also looks like 3 of these were made, from plans and Rice marine Railway was the go to source for her construction. She has lived in Florida, The Bahamas, Annapolis and up and down the South East Coast. Made many runs. The more we clean her up and play with her, the better she gets. Everything works, Clif has gone through a list of dated electrical issues. It all works, just needed GFI and other safety stuff. We have changed all the lights to LED which is brighter and less drain. She is getting there, so we can go there one day this summer. Wherever that there is!
Sadly all the bright work has been painted over around the windows. Which is fine I suppose. I have enough varnishing to do yearly. So we will limit the amount.
And here are some off white options.
Oh there is more on Kirby’s website, it’s like a wonderful Rabbit Hole of colored paddles. Just Click HERE
Here are two different whites with the custom Green. Yikes.
And now of course we still like a simple Tan and white. Combo. Please. make this stop!
