Ahoy, Howard!

If you make it to Lisbon and see the cannon, how about taking a picture and emailing it to me? I never made it to the mainland for a visit.

Of the 4 bronze cannons we raised, each was of a different nationality, one French, one English, one Spanish, and one Portuguese. The museum in Lisbon chose the Portuguese for its collection, of course. The remaining 3 are in the museum in Angra do Herosimo, Terciera Island, Azores. We brought up a number of iron cannons as well, including a deck-mounted mortar.

The windvane on my Tahiti Ketch is an Aries, designed by Nick Franklin (now deceased for 20 or more years), an Englishman, and manufactured in England. There are a number of copycat versions, but I've not seen any that are up to the same robust standard of the original. This is the third one I've had, and I've found it to be totally reliable. I had to make a slight modification of the plywood vane so that it would clear my mizzen boom, but the performance is the same.

I tried accessing your facebook sites and on both of them I got a message from Google saying that they were not on a server anywhere.

Stay in touch.

Regards,

Robbie

Ahoy, Howard:

Thanks for the thought. Actually, I lived on Terciera for 18 months back in the early 60's. Was a member of a dive team that raised 4 priceless bronze cannons for the Portuguese government. Three of them are on display at the government museum in Angra do Herosimo, and the other is in the Grand Museum in Lisbon.

Loved your photos. Tell me more about your new boat. I am unfamiliar with the make. And, how did you come by it?

Fair winds to you.
