Just like the wind... it’s free! Telling the Rest of the Story


I was delighted with your (December, 2010) cover, but disappointed that you didn’t tell the history! http://www.exulanten.com/rouse.html


Izzit Not


Thanks Izzit, (nom de plume?) for sending us the history. The story is wonderful but far too long to publish here. In a nutshell, it’s the story of a man, Shuenemann, who brought in Christmas trees to Chicago and sold them off ships to German-Americans for their Christmas celebrations. It’s quite a fascinating story with harrowing tales of ships braving the Great Lakes winter—well worth visiting the above website.


Looking for Technical Info on the Haida 26


Could you steer me to a resource for technical information, i.e. dimensions, drawings, etc., for the flush deck model of the Haida 26 sloop that was designed by Ray Richards and built by Philbrook’s Shipyard in Sidney B.C. back in the 1970’s? I enjoyed owning one of these little ships and would like to build a scale model radio controlled version. I had a pleasant chat with a lady at Philbrook’s and she indicated all the records they might have had have been destroyed, as the yard is under new ownership and this effort was a long time ago. Thanks for any input you might provide.

egillanders@donobi.net The Haida 26 is a great little boat. It’s surprising we don’t


see more of them around. I’m sure one of our Haida sailors can help you out.

Change a life. Donate your boat.


Support local and regional programs for children and young adults through the charitable donation of your boat. The Pacific Marine foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization funding regional programs such as Northwest Youth Services, Sea Scouts, Boys & Girls Clubs, and local public school education foundations. A substantial tax savings and the possibility of a partial cash sale makes a charitable donation a very attractive alternative for any owner who is considering selling their power or sailing yacht.
