Godfrey’s 12\′ Sailboat

Boat model is— ahem! — none other than a San Francisco Pelican, a lovely boat, one that once sailed from SF to the Farallone Islands. Godfrey’s removed the center board and rigged it up on the starboard side so he ‘ll have a roomy interior. He claims he can get 8 people inside. It’s got a sliding (curved) clear Lexan roof for rainy weather. It’ll have a junk rig. Godfrey has sailed around Vancouver Island several times, once in a homemade catamaran.
