West End boatwatch…

The great Alden schooner When and If has been in Soper’s Hole for about a week now. The link gives the details better than I can, but in short, she was built for General George S. Patton… A great cruising hull and rig; plenty of workboat heritage, but still an Alden, but without any yachtiness. Chatted with the crew a bit, and felt nearly ready to talk my way aboard for a sail, especially when I saw them doing some service repair and renewing some siezings. Ah!
