In our last issue (Volume 41) and post we had written about Noel Lynam and Kathy Hayes; currently living in Kolonia, Pohnpei, Micronesia. Who are in the process of making repairs to their sailboat. We asked to know more about them and their story, so here it is:
* photos taken in Canada, Hawaii, Marshall Islands, and working on the boat in Pohnpei.
An Acorn 15 Whitehall style dinghy designed by Iain Oughtred. The ply is okoume and all hardwood is black walnut, finished bright. All fixtures and fittings are bronze, as is the forward facing rowing system (from Gig Harbor Boat Works). She handles like a dream.

After a full life on the Columbia River, OR, Lars Nielsen acquired her in 2004. Starting life as ‘Toby’, he renamed her ‘Marika II’ and refurbished her for family boating.
Now this old lady is living the life of a grand dame on the Elbe River. She is fully restored to her original state under the name of ‘Viva of Conover Cove’.
