Williams, who had built the 137-foot Ranger from the lines of Harold Vanderbilt's 1937 America's Cup defender, is known for his nothing-but-the-best taste. So the crew was somewhat puzzled when they were instructed to change out of their usual natty red-and-white Line 7 uniforms and don turquoise shirts, red shorts and lime green hats.
