Los Angeles, California 1998
I ran across these while unpacking the other day. We lived, as sneak aboards, in Marina Del Rey before moving to San Francisco in early 1999. She was a 34′ Stephens Sedan. Built in 1949 of port orford cedar on oak frames with mahogany decks and cabin. Accommodations were luxurious compared to the TimeMachine.
When we first saw it from the dock, Cheyenne said “Oooooooh, we’d have to name it ‘The Betty.'” Talking with owner later we learned she was already named Betty Page and that pretty much sealed the deal.
