After leaving Ocean Park I decided to follow Willipa Bay north using Highway 101 to reach I-5 then on to Seattle. I was just outside Raymond ,Washington and saw this big cat in a field next to a small creek. I stopped to look and get a pic and the owner of Pelican Yachts was there and we chatted about catamarans for over an hour. They have been building cats since the 1970s and do custom work from a number of designers. This boat is a carbon fiber 52 Shuttleworth. The person who ordered it decided they wanted bigger so they are building an eighty plus version with a spiral staircase now!
I am a sailor. Cashed it all in in 2003 and sailed around the NW USA then went to Mexico for two years then sailed to Australia on a Baltic 42. Sold the boat in OZ and bought a Privilege 42 in Venezuela. Not fully retired so have been doing the nuclear steam generator change out gig to recharge my financial batteries. Work 13-15 hours a day for two to three months. Make great money quickly so I can get back to the boat.
