November 6, 2009: After four years and one month, US 44, formerly S-185, Hansina, fka Nagala, was lowered into the Puget Sound. It happened on August 13th. Kim Bottles, owner of US 51, Ceol Mor, made available a mooring for Hansina and took all of the attached photos, the “action shots” being her first sail in almost 20 years. Hansina is being hauled for the season in about a week or so to head back to Legendary Yachts for construction of interior furniture, work on many details, and for many more coats of Bristol Finish varnish. Apologies for the sails. Many of Hansina’s sails are 30 years old, and more. Yet with a little tugging here and there, Hansina sails as good as she looks.
Whew, we made it!
