Kit Boat Sailboat Value

The Holland Museum in Holland, Michigan has received a complete 1951 8-foot Chris-Craft kit sailboat in very good condition.

Forrest G. Boerma Obituary

Pete, Al et al,

How do I attach the obituary for Forrest G. Boerma that appeared in the Grand Rapids Press in 2001?

Glad to be part of the club. One of his "signature" boats is sitting here in Holland waiting for a complete redo.
