OT-Nauti Girl

Over in another thread I stated that I owned a sailboat. Some members requested that I show some more photos about the process that I have taken over the last 4 years of retoring her. Right off the bat she is a girl and I respect that I call her my girl.

4 years ago my wife and I were at a dinner party and we were talking about sailing. At this time I had restored my third sailboat Volare, She was a 25ft race boat and had been hulled, a huge hole in the side of the boat from another sailboat. I had spent a year on Volare and was talking about the process of cutting a 2 ft section out of the side of the hull, sanding down the whole boat and spraying her with Imron.

So after some drinks at the party the other couple we were with told us about a boat at the lake we could get into cheap, I like these kind of deals, so we proceeded to discuss the location and we got in the car the next morning and headed to the lake. The boat had been sitting for about 8 years with little to no one cleaning up after her. The exterior of the hull and the structural components were in place as we moved into the interior. at some point the water had been so high inside her that the teak flooring had rotted out, there was crap every where and I looked over the systems and discussed our options with my wife. It was extreamly cold that day in 2009.

We started by having to pay to get the boat out of the slip she was in and moved her to the hard to start removing all the items inside and taking everything off of the boat.

You can see in these photos of the rotten teak and holly flooring, it was a true shame having to rip it out, at some point this was a beautiful yacht.

More phots of the interior and removing the teak floor. My wife was busy cleaning out the interior as I worked on the exterior removing all the rotted ruunning rigging and taking notes of the items removed as we took hardware home every week to clean, oil or throw out and replace.

Here you can see the structural grid system in the boat. The good about this design is its what you call Clasic Plastic, fiberglass construction. So you can really just gutt what you need and have a good base to resore from. My wife cleaned the next photos. The Diesel smell was really strong, and the plumbing smelled like Sh1t. I give her credit as I worked on the exterior in a nice summers breeze as she cleaned up the crap, no pun intended.

Thank you for sharing this. I really enjoyed the read and am looking forward to the next chapter.

You have a beautiful family. I'm sure your son loves the boat.

CCCP, you want to see my wife in the water or my boat, lol. My dog is a boxer/pit mix. He broke the glass out of the door last week so he is not on my "nice" list. Thanks for the comments and yes, my son loves to sail. He has been on a sailboat ever since he was 6 months old.

One day I will fill you all in on my father. He is the reason that I sail.

More to come later.

That looks like a LOT of work and you did a very nice job on it. My brother has a 34' Hunter at a dock in the Charleston Harbor we go out on every once in a while. He's had to do a lot of restoration on it as well but never repaired anything that extensive. I love, love, love teak but hate, hate, hate trying to maintain it...

In honor of this thread, I have changed my avatar to a sailing theme (Olympics 6m elliott)

Chris,
By the way, I was in Tulsa-OK on Saturday. I was at the Camp Loughridge (4900 W 71st) all afternoon. On my way back to Texas I kinda remembered that you live in Tulsa but it was way too late. Shame on me.

Now back to the Sail boat. I remember a few months ago when we were in ‘INPA mode’ you briefly mentioned about having a sail boat. But you didn’t quite get into detail regarding this sail boat and I didn’t inquire further. Shame on me- again.

What can I say?………This project is totally inspirational. I mean, the risk involved, time, effort, resources and sacrifice you put forth from the very beginning up to the completion date is terrific. This is a real man’s project. I wish I had the drive and guts to attempt something like that.

I don’t believe there is a better feeling in the world when you and your family stretch ‘Nauti Girl’ legs out in the wild waters.

Oh that totally sucks!!!!! We could have had a ball, Saturday we ended up going to Hard Rock and we won big....42 bucks, lol.

I will get into the sailing topic again later tonight, I have a couple of photos here at the house but more at work on the server. It will be a good read.

Thanks for the kind words but the facts are that I really don't have the extra money to blow on a new boat and I absolutely love fixing them up. I have been involved in sailing all my life and again a great story to tell everyone, it's just about life and the curves it throws your way.

All I have to say is YES.. There is only a small amount of time in your life to really enjoy what you do and the feeling of controlling a sailboat is aw inspiring. The wind in your face as the wind directs you, the down burst of wind that tips the hull ever so more close to the edge and the sure power you feel at the helm as you are sailing.

So more to come.

Tonight I think I will just talk about my roots, the love and desire of being a man with a boat.

The Beginning.

My father got involved in sailing at the age of 32, at this time I was about 6 yrs old and I remember being up at the lake as my dad was learning to sail in the winter months. Mike was my fathers name and he was a very sought after home builder back in 1976 here in the Tulsa area. Mike was building homes and we as a family would go up to the lake every weekend with some of my parents friends.

The car rides on Friday after school were in the jag v12 with my mom at the wheel my 2 brothers fighting back and forth as we screened down the road with our English bull dog in the back window. The jag at that time in my minds eyes was a total electrical nightmare. We went thru three of them less than a year.

As we headed towards the lake right after school already packed the night before we would race my other parents friends. It was a great memory of driving fast and as we would pass my parents friends we would all give them the old moon. We would take the 2 lane roads with style and dad was already up at the lake practicing for the weekend regattas.

Now you might be saying to yourself, WTF is Chris talking about? He lives in Oklahoma. That is true but in Oklahoma we have more shoreline than the east and gulf coast combined. So my memory of my father still comes and goes, when I am on the boat I know he is near or just feel that I hold him close, I think it's my way of dealing with his passing.

In 1978 he had placed second in the one-quarter ton North Americans located in New Orleans, and placed first in 1978 at the Mini-Ton North American in Dallas sailing a Lindenburg 22 named Sauerkraut. In 1978 dad started talking to Bruce Kelley about designing a Mini-Ton boat. The boat was built by Lovfauld Marine in Florida in 10 weeks. It was a cold molded boat from what I have been told.

Continued

“1979 my father was losing the use of his legs and was complaining about how the bottoms of his feet were feeling. I remember him going to Dallas for treatments. He would come home from Dallas and Houston and would spend weeks in the bed trying to recover from the doctors” exploratory treatments. Despite the medical problems, 1979 was again another great year of sailing for my dad. He won the 1979 Mini Ton North American in Marina Del Ray, and again in 1980 in Annapolis. At this point the Mini-Ton association was becoming very strong and my father was invited to the World Championships in Scotland.

By this time my dad had taken a turn for the worse and was now walking with a cane. I remember him taking us all to Hawaii for Christmas in 1979. By the time we all got back he now had to use crutches, and he decided to let the crew of the boat take her to Scotland.

In 1980 the crew had won the World Championship. Dad seemed like he was on top of the world, but he was stricken with the MS. At this point in our lives things started to change. The expensive cars and houses were being sold to pay for medical bills. The boats were all sold, and the cabin at the lake was also sold. I have fond memories of Grand Lake; I also remember my oldest brother taking my father over his shoulder and having to carry him down the catwalk to the dock with Max, our English bulldog, sitting on the beach eating rocks.

My father was a fighter and wouldn’t let the Multiple Sclerosis keep him down. He was a fine arts major from the University of Tulsa and had learned to use a head mouse so he could paint on the computer. He had a showing at Philbrook Museum in Tulsa. It seemed that he was keeping his mind off of the MS and back on the sport he loved, sailing.

In 2003 my wife and I bought a 1975 San Juan 24 sailboat from the local MS Society. My father had remembered the boat from his sailing days, and my wife and I loved going over to my parents home and telling my father what we had learned on the boat. In 2004 we bought a Capri 25, which needed some work done to it, and I would love going over to the house and telling dad again what I was up to. I was repairing the boat for our annual MS Close Regatta that was to be held on September 10, 2005. It was June of 2005 when I received the news that my father had only about a month to live. I spent every day at his bedside or at the lake trying to get the boat into the water.

July 1, 2005, my dad passed away at 59 years old with us all at his side. His last request was for him to be set out to sea. He wanted his ashes spread into the Gulf of Mexico off of Corpus Christi. “Not in the bay,” he said “but in the ocean” where he used to sail. On my father’s birthday my mother felt it was her time to let my father go. A friend of my father lived down in Corpus along with a great friend of my parents. They had set us up with a great place to stay, and we set out to sea on dad’s birthday, spreading his ashes into the Gulf. We had a relaxing day back at Corpus.

I sail our boat because of my father. He never really had the chance to teach me how to sail. But I would sit by his bedside and listen to him tell me what I needed to do. Without him in my life I would have never had the sensation of the wind blowing across my face. When I walk outside and I feel the winds picking up, I think of him. I know that he would have given anything to be sitting by my side on the weather rail.

Chris

Just a FYI I wrote the above as an article for a sailing site years back, I was too lazy last night to try and remember all the details, so I cut and paste.

He was a good man.

It was a great read! Very sorry to hear of your fathers passing, but it is uplifting to see the great positive impact he had on his family. No doubt one day your son will look back on his childhood memories of sailing and feel the same sentiments that you feel today.
