No sign of my #1 issue of the Brass Bell as yet. Is there a problem sending to Canada? Jim.

Got mine yesterday in Valencia, CA. Absolutely LOVE your cover photo. Was hoping to see a little more of that boat between the covers. I have some questions on the Aphrodite, but will ost them in a different Boat Buzz section related to research.

Doug, I believe that discussion took place on page 50 of Laclede's thread. It is still there. We must have digressed. Also, that is not the "Aphrodite" I was referring to. I was thinking of John H Whitney's commuter yacht a 74' beauty built by the Purdy Boat Company in 1936. Google it, you won't be sorry. It has some awesome history too.

This is in regards to the current (Spring? 2015) issue of the Brass Bell. Not really wanting to complain but all my Cruiser buddies are raving about the article on Troy's "American Beauty" and I can't join in because mine hasn't arrived yet!! Any idea when I might expect it?

Got mine a couple of days ago. Great to read a cruiser guy's story. Can't wait for some more cruiser guy's stories. I know we're out there.

Thanks Bill!

I think the really cool Cruiser story in this issue is Victoria Bauer's story about Sweet Caroline. WOW she makes me look like little leaguer with the job she did.

I will bring my copy to Dora, if you will make the trip to come get it.

Bill, if it doesn't show up by tomorrow let me know, I'll get a fresh one on its way to you. Too good an issue to miss out on.
