UPDATE TO THIS STORY: A LOVELY GIFT TO THE BYC...
Margaret Travis and her son Steven
have donated a beautiful, classic 8-day Ship's Clock with Chimes to our Club in memory of husband and father Frank Travis
, a long time devoted Member and sailor who died in 2006. Frank skippered Xara
, a 34' Cal sailboat.
Member Rob McArdle
is making a proper base to hold the clock and it will soon be in our upper lounge for all to see. By coincidence, both the clock and the late Mr. Travis were "manufactured" in 1921!
I WAS WRONG!
Rob called me last evening and told us that he was not going to be doing this because of other projects that were in his plans, and thus limited availability, even though he'd like to help.
Ooops. Sorry, Rob!
Bottom line: I can take care of this in the next week or so, unless you'd like to call me and pitch in...you could well be a better woodworker than I am!
