    Hi Robin and Karen,

    That's great that you know them! I so love the greenhouse. They did arrive in Maine, to Belfast, in August. A friend of mine rowed out to say hello, not knowing anything about this discussion, but quite sure that I would be interested – and of course she was right. This led to me being in touch with them, which is being delightful. They weren't able to come to the junket, but it's fantastic having them in the neighborhood!

    Thanks so much for saying something here. Where are the two of you now? I hope that you had a fantastic summer.

    Seems so, about being Badger-based. Hopefully more information will turn up over the long term.

    Something like a year later, I heard from the owners of that boat named Kilda that I had posted about quite a while back. That boat was also photographed by Bill Cheney, in the South Carolina creeks. If I'm really lucky, I'll reach the folks on Quan Yin to see if they might be up toward New England in the fall, and if maybe they would like to come to the junket. That would be a serious treat. My boat farm is so tiny, compared to what they are doing! For so many reasons, it would be fun to connect a little bit.

    Jay Benford reckoned so too, over on Facebook.

    Well, she's obviously 'based' - I use the word in its broadest sense - on a Badger, if that's any help.

    If anyone can find an owner, she would make a fine BOTM! There must be a story behind her.

    Seen recently in Factory Creek, Lady's Island, South Carolina. Thanks to Bill Cheney for the photo.
