Read some interesting correspondence regarding Showtime, the Trumpy that's having its refitting documented in the "Yacht Yard".
September 29, 2008
My father, the late captain C.S. Webster, was the original captain of the Trumpy yacht Showtime, ex-Sinbad. ("Yacht Yard" August 2008) The vessel summered under cover at the concrete Richard Bertram docks on the Miami River. This no doubt contributed to her overall "showroom" condition. I grew up on the Bertram docks and my earliest summer jobs were working with my dad on board Sinbad.
I hold additional observations, insights, and materials far too vast to share here. It appears that such historical record is rare; perhaps my insights will enhance current efforts with Sinbad.
