Dear Dick,

I took the rigging to Jack Scullion in Alameda this morning.
He's located sort-of behind Nelson's Marine.
On the hard nearby was this monstrosity:

Steve Fosset's 32 meter (105') Catamaran

LOA 105'; LWL 97'6"; Beam 60'; Draft 14'8" (daggerboards down); Estimated Displacement 38,460 lbs.; Sail Area 7,274 sq. ft. (upwind), 11,631 sq. ft. (with masthead reacher); SA/D 102 (upwind), 163 (with masthead reacher); D/L 15.71; L/B 18.39 (for single hull); Auxiliary twin 100-hp Yanmar diesels; Fuel 150 gals.; Water 30 gals.

Jack said it showed up about a week before Fossett disappeared
and little has happened to the boat since.
Jack needed about an hour to inspect the rigging so I went and had breakfast here:

Weekly Farmer's Market: I found a really good artichoke focaccia,

and Needle in a Haystack, an excellent needlework store.
Another attraction near Nelson' Marine:
