I would love to see my old boat again. She is a converted MFV, built in the Forbes yard in 1944. We re-built her in Villa Real, Portugal in 1974, then took her to Gibraltar for work on her Gardiner 8L-3 engine .I stepped a steel mast on her and she was painted white with ruby-red trim.
I sailed her back to the US and cruised the Caribbean for several years until other work took me away and the last time I heard anything about her whereabouts, I was told that she MAY have been spotted in Panama.
I'm turning 81 next week and I would truly love to see Ruby (or whatever she's called now) before I have to check out. She was my greatest labor of love sweat and tears. This is my first posting and I don't know if I can post a photo, of which I have many. In any case, if you think you might have any clue where Ruby is now please contact me directly at (305) 304-5990  or DAVEKWF@HOTMAIL>COM.
Thank you
