RELIANCE

This image was taken shortly after launching RELIANCE. We still did not have an engine, so resorted to using a Seagull outboard. As you can imagine that only worked in flat calm weather, which meant that we had to anchor outside the harbor and wait for the wind to die down, often spending the night till the early morning. ~David F Hamilton, original owner of RELIANCE.
