Hi Daria and all,
For anyone who gets within striking distance of the Lagos boatyard: Alfredo Lagos was the leader of many excursions around the Rias for the OCC. His rallies were among the most enthusiastically received rallies I have ever heard about. A visit to the boatyard is not only a visit to a present-day working yard, but also a visit to a working museum. For example: on the upstairs office wall are numerous wooden propeller blades: beautiful in their own right. When you realize that each blade was hand carved to be the template for the metal blade to be cast from, I expect most will be as gobsmacked as I was.
It is just a very special place.
My best, Dick Stevenson, s/v Alchemy
