|When the Fishermiss was
new it was owned by a man who owned a fish market on Santa Monica Pier. He
hired fishermen to run the boat. His name was Alfred Volkinhorn, nick
named Curly. |
FISHERMISS was sold to a new owner in 2004. We are attempting to locate the previous owner(s) and the current owner to obtain some history about the boat.

|While DYAD II was receiving her
annual bottom painting, a Boatwright named Jeff Logan happened to spot her
name newly painted on the transon. "I wouldn't have given her a second
thought," he said, "except that I noticed the name and had to stop." Turns
out that Jeff apprenticed to his dad, and in 1983 helped re-do the deck
and toe rail on DYAD II when she was owned by Steve Calhoun.|
Jeff immediately telephoned Steve who rushed down to Eddies Marine in Wilmington to check out his old flame. The Calhouns sold DYAD II in about 1989 to Steve Tyler. The rest of the story is in the Boatyard.
