A one class classic on San Francisco Bay is the BEAR BOAT.  This is hull#8, called POLAR BEAR, built in 1938 by Nunes Brothers in Sausilito. A "quick and dirty" bottom job to stabilize things until a proper effort can be mounted next season.  We found it necessary to install 24 sisters!!! Not bad for 72 years old!!!.

Thanks for Fred Pettersen for the info on this K-50!

This is K-50 , Irish Mist. When we saw her she was owned by Jim and Gail Hughes. Jim had added the hard dodger which is just visible in the picture. We met them at the start of our circumnavigation in early 1993. They were anchored in Puerto Pichilinque( near La Paz), Baja California Sur. Being fellow K-50 owners we had lots to talk about and got in some spear fishing as well at some of Jim and Gail's favorite haunts. I think they are doing captained charters now in the same general area.
We are still looking for info about this boat. If you can help, please send us an email.
