After pecking away at an article on Sjogin for WoodenBoat for the last decade, and after her Sandy sinking and restoration, WB 247 will feature Sjogin's story. What a treat to work with Matt Murphy and company in making this very special dream come true. The photos by the talented Jay Fleming (http://www.jayflemingphotography.com/) are terrific.

And thanks as well to her many friends on the Forum that provided so much support and comfort, especially after Sandy. I'm humbled to be part of this community.

Here are a few other Jay Fleming photos, used with permission.

Jay spent a good deal of time hanging off the dock when we got back to show Sjogin's shape forward along with her battle scars and less than symmetrical stem.

We had a light breeze as you can see, just enough for some slow sailing.

Finally, your very, very, happy Skipper.



Thanks again all. Enjoy.

And do come for a sail!

Very cool. I"ve always enjoyed reading about your lovely boat, and was horrified and then delighted at her sinking and restoration. Could you answer a question - how do you properly pronounce her name?

Russ Manheimer
10-12-2015, 04:22 PM
It's So'-gin Garth. The J is silent. The article has the story of her name.

Russ, thanks again for the sail. What a pleasure to to see Sjogin in the flesh, eh, wood. We even got to hove to, off that other point, but it was close to Swan Pt.

Looking forward to WB 247 to provide even more motivation to a start a Sjogin II.

The epitomy of a happy skipper:

Great stuff, Russ. Congratulations.

Russ Manheimer
10-13-2015, 02:20 PM
@wizbang 13 That's the technique. When on the wind just pull the tiller and she'll head up and tack. The jib's left aback and Bob's your uncle.

To tack when hove to the windward jib sheet is cast off, the leeward jib sheet is trimmed and she'll head up and tack. Very useful when standing in the companionway tending the stove.

Is Sjogoin anywhere near little egg harbor? I would love to see her sometime. My sis lives there and we drive up to visit.

Bugger me but, WOOF she's just jaw droppingly sweet, Russ. Can't wait to learn what else there is to be known about her sojourn and, as others have said 'Lookin' good!!!"

Congrats and many happy returns!

My copy finally came today. Thanks to all for your support and kind words. And thanks to WoodenBoat for making this all possible. And thanks to Jay Fleming for his fine photography.

Here's your very happy correspondent with an unextinguishable grin. What a thrill.

Very good article, especially for an old Jersey boy like me. Would have liked some interior pics. Could you provide a few?

Thanks.

Here you go Irv,

These are all pre-Sandy. The new cabin sole and ceiling are halfway done and hope to have a fire soon. There's not a lot down below, just enough for a bunk, stove, bookshelves and sprawling space.


https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2253/4508456312_72d8d834fb_z.jpg

Looking forward. That's a nine foot lifeboat oar, Sjogin's ash breeze.

The heart of Sjogin during the off-season.


https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5136/5506477872_fecd672a69_z.jpg

Just enough room to read and tend the fire. Cozy for one, two's a pinch.

Thanks. Sure looks cozy. I'll bet Tices Shoal is finally empty and quiet, and you have it mostly to yourself. Time to hunker down near the fire and read.

Best regards,

Here are a few recent pics taken down below. The sole and ceiling are mostly done and the berth flat still needs new cleats spiled to the new ceiling but the stove's back in operation. I'm sure by now you could find a few drops of sausage fat on the new cedar.

Had a brief Forumite visit last Saturday, Dan McCosh and his wife stopped by for a watch below. They missed any chance at a freshly sizzled sausage bread by an hour.

Stove platform gets fitted. Well at least on three corners it's fitted; a shim and wedge work on the corner you can't see.


https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5665/23194573441_7160e11380_z.jpg

Stove in place and fitting the upper stove pipe. Several times.


https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5808/22883073127_d83c6279a3_z.jpg

First fire and first warm food on board in a long while.

First read. Thought it appropriate to start with one of the masters of small boat porn. Oh Ms. Prim.


Sail slow my friends.

Debby and I were in a Barnes and Noble yesterday doing some last minute shopping and saw the issue on the rack (mostly sold out!). Great pleasure to see your smiling visage in the wild, as it were.
Congrats!
