  1. Sorry Kerry. Just saw your message. I know that Wild Turkey was built by Alexander Boats so I assume you're the one in the same Alexander.

    The Pacific Cup was not our best race, but it was a great experience. However, Wild Turkey, now Red Cloud does very well racing on San Francisco bay. I first sailed on the boat in the early 80's and instantly took a liking to the boat. I bought the boat in 2000 after it had fell idle and was in pretty poor shape. There had been a fire below and the damage had not been properly fixed. So, I spent almost ten years refurbishing the boat, working mostly on weekends. I gutted the interior, fabricated and installed all new and bulkheads, settee berths, nav stataion etc. I also replaced about a third of the deck.

    Red Cloud is a great boat and I enjoy her immensely.

    Hi Don my name is Kerry Alexander and as a result of random surfing the internet with an interest in the One Ton Cup I came across your name and boat which was ex Wild Turkey. I see you are entered in the Pacific Cup to Hawaii and will follow your progress with interest as I am the original builder of Wild Turkey, now Red Cloud. I wish you all the best - regards Kerry
