Marlene and I are pleased to announce that a date has been set
to launch the schooner Larinda. After more than twenty-six years of
work and joy, along with a few hardships, we plan to launch Larinda
on September 28, 1996, at the Sandwich, Massachusetts, Marina
located next to the Cape Cod Canal.

Larinda is a modified replica of the colonial schooner Sultana
which was built in Boston, Massachusetts, during 1767. I say
modified replica, as many changes have been made in the original
design, including a small increase in length.

Another interesting addition is our choice of auxiliary power. A
1928 Wolverine diesel, rated at one hundred horsepower at 350 rpm,
has been fully restored over a ten year period. It is now installed
and ready to go.

We would like to invite everyone to come and witness this
spectacular event. The festivities will start early in the morning
and last all day. Several television stations will be on hand,
along with many other types of media.

At this time I would like to ask your help with part of the
festivities. We would like to christen Larinda with a bottle
containing water from the oceans of the world. If one individual
from each geographic region would send a small amount of ocean
water to our address, the christening will touch everyone from
around the globe. Wouldn’t that be exciting?

Marlene and I look forward to everyone’s visit and I promise
it will be a day to remember.
