Just a heads up that 4 Westsail 32 will be on the hard together at Ladd's Marina, Stockton CA - Julie and Jim Focha World Wind, Randy Leasure Tortuga, Duke MacGill Amable and Doug Lamb Pelican will be working on their boats starting 3/26 and continuing for a few weeks.
Dave King arrives April 2 to assist and perform his hull modification magic - I'll be there later in the week with my tools and work clothes to get in the way and take photos.
Bud is planning on attending April 7 and there is a no-host dinner in the area - more see information below.
but not really a rendezvous,
at Stockton in Central California on
April 7th, 2012.
Any interested boatowners are invited to join Dave and crew on Saturday, April 7 to check out the work and ask Dave any questions you may be pondering about making your Westsail into a speedy one.
There will be a no-host dinner on Saturday evening at one of the local restaurants to go over his great work.

I do plan to be there several days and will be taking photos of the process and getting my hands dirty. Tough to get photo's while working though..
Bud Taplin provided these images of before and after the Dave King modifications. Note the gap between the rudder and the hull. Gary Burton's Elizabeth Ann on the right.
The Westsails are on the hard at Ladd's Marina in Stockton, CA and it's not raining -- at least when the photo was taken:).
I'll be dropping by Sunday to help then back on Wednesday. A Julie/Jim Focha image.
