Recently we received a report from California… we sent this nice 12′ Point Defiance to central California quite a few years ago. The owner and his family have rowed and sailed their boat all over, from Mountain lakes to offshore jaunts as a tender for a larger sailboat. He recently sent us some photos of their adventures… my favorite of these is ‘Offshore to Point Reyes’ because the effect of the boat coming through the fog is just like a painting – makes me reflect on earlier times.

Here are his note and photos (click photos for larger view):

” As you can see, the “Green Strawberry” (as my young daughter named her) gets around.  I still love her lines.”
