I found the boat pictures this morning in a small box the cover of which appears above. Clean, eye-catching commercial design, and I like it. I’ve tried to use a two-column page template, but I don’t think it’s going to work. For all it’s good points, WordPress’ features, to use their own terminology, is still a little “janky.” I don’t think two-column’s going to work at all.
Mom wrote in to say: “Boat Pictures: They look good – the guy in the plaid shirt is not Gayle – the one with the unknown couple. He built the boat to sail around the world, but on his first trial run he got to Patrick’s Point near Humboldt and realized it was far too dangerous – he was in a storm – to sail around the world alone. He came back to Pedro, outfitted it for sailing (racing? local cruising? ed.) and joined the King Harbor Yacht Club in Redondo Beach. The name of the boat was the Tazlina I think – I’d have to look that up. I have a boating magazine in which there is an article about the boat and his racing. I still have his trophies upstairs in the attic. It was essentially a ‘Choi Lee’ style boat – probably misspelled.
I haven’t found the boat-building slides yet. If I do, I’ll post them to a separate page. The next two slides were in the box marked “Boat,” but are family photos apparently unrelated to things aquatic.
Chris – The 3rd photo down of unknown couple is Gayle’s Aunt Marie and Uncle Art. She was Hilda’s sister.
