Louis Meyer, aboard his Pilot, Strummer, crossed the starting line from Newport, R.I., and is very much in the Bermuda 1-2 Race now. He is sailing solo to Bermuda. After he rests up a bit, he has two others hopping aboard and sailing Bermuda to the Azores on his Pilot!

Shogun's fuel tank

Shogun has a new fuel tank. The removal was routine but the repositioning was a bit of a challange but has been accomplished . This was completed by the Hinckley yard in Oxford,MD. For anyone interested there is a photo of the new tank posted under photos. When we pulled the old tank out I found a socket wrench,2 screw drivers,and a stuffing box nut in the bilge where the tank was located !

"Yes, David, the top sides are Awlgrip Flag Blue. We last did that in the early 1990s so I have to assume the Yaros or Tom Miller renewed them since then. Thanks for keeping her "Bristol." Best to you for fair winds and following seas."

"Don- Do you recall the brand and type of paint on Caper's (nee Tecumseh) topsides?  I know it's "Flag Blue" which makes me think Interlux, but Awlgrip has a color by the same name, too.   I need to patch a few…"
