    You have to wonder why he was out in those conditions to begin with?

    She's a Peterson Mark III 1 tonner, recently owned by Tom Hume from Everett Washington...

    Remember her from her time on the bay in the late 80s, racing against the likes of the Farr 40 1 tonner "Pacific Sundance", among others. Tough to second guess the situation, as he was taking on water.

    My guess is that she will be sharing some seafloor in Davey Jones's Locker with the Flyin Hawaiian.

    Spoke with Tom Hume just now.

    He owned Kentucky Woman for 25 years, purchased her in 1990-1991, wasn't real positive on that date.

    Sailed the dickens out of here and set her up for cruising, taking her to Canada and Alaska solo.

    He bought her from Gary Woods, a San Francisco Bay Native that raced her against all the other IOR boats in BBS and offshore events.

    She was built in Bainbridge Island by Miller Marine.

    He sold her 3-4 years ago to a diver from Half Moon Bay that, in Tom's opinion wasn't much of a sailor but was looking for an inexpensive liveaboard situation.

    Assuming she was anchored out at Pillar Point...

    What she was doing out to sea in those conditions is a good question...

    Tom mention that the main was pretty tired when he sold her, so the loss of main isn't surprising..

    Tom loved that boat, but he's getting up their in years and it was time to say goodbye...







    Michele Rogalin forwards some pics from Jan's Marine Photography of Kentucky Woman in happier times...

    KW will more than likely catch up to Rimas, who, not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, will board her and request a tow into Port San Luis.
