    Default Ron Macon's Racing Yacht built in 1897.

    What a wonderful gentleman and his yacht. Heartbreaking to see him have to sale her.

    Amazing, happy and very sad all at once. Watching him crying at the idea of selling her was difficult, but not as difficult as for him. And what a job he's done too.

    Growing old ain't for sissies! Leaving our loves of former times behind is the toughest thing of all!

    ... all he needs is to hire a Teenager from the local Yacht club to go sailing with him... combined age of the crew looked to be around 140yrs!
    there did seem to be a bit of fumbling with lengths of line going on.
