Bluewater Ingrid Sightings










We met two Bluewater Ingrid 38s in San Diego. We had run into the Scotts who are the new owners of Faiaohe in Santa Barbara about month ago. They are now at the Police Dock. The boat looks great with it's new hailing port of Hilo, Hawaii (ex Victoria, BC). Part of the story of the boat can be found here, at the Na Hoa Holomoku of Hawaii Yacht Club. She is ketch rigged.
















The second yacht was Les Preludes from Seattle. I talked to the skipper briefly. He said he had finished the hull in the early '80s. The boat has more freeboard than many, as he raised the deck five inches and added some hefty bulwarks on the top. The boat had a lot of beautiful bronze work done by a friend. The forward hatch was on the house top leaving a large foredeck. She is cutter rigged.
