Mocko Jumbie Update

Liz Harding keeps Mocko Jumbie 37VT48 on St. Croix, USVI.  Hurricane Maria, when she was a Category 5, went right over the island.
"We made it through [Hurricane Maria]
just fine, comparatively.  At least a dozen vessels were totally destroyed.  Very heart breaking.   We are still without power, but everything is ok.  We actually ran the boat for a good 4 hours around Buck Island to give the batteries a good charge.  She has been running better than ever."

John William 37VT68: Teak Deck Removal

From: John Mackie <>

Started working on removing the teak decks. Along the way I found the source of rain water in the engine room next to the stbd stringer. I also found a couple other holes that were plugged from the bottom side. These may have been where they took core samples to inspect the layup schedule. Will be removing the decking on the bow and should find the stateroom leak tomorrow. Lots of very bad teak coming off with water damage and splits. Not a fun job but will be worth it in the end.

Tug Spotting -- Lil' Toot

Our newest owner, Benjamin Phillips, was spotted on his maiden voyage
aboard Lil Toot 37VT75. The folks at the Chickamauga Lock on the Tennessee
River captured this shot when they were locking through on the way to her
new home in downtown Chattanoga, TN.
