Craig Anderson's SHOREBIRD II of Stonington
(click on images for larger version)

I have enclosed some pictures of my boat, SHOREBIRD II of Stonington, a 1971 Westerly Warwick (hull number P-69) that I keep in Escanaba, Michigan near our summer cottage. This is the 10th sailboat that I have owned over the last 45 years, and my second twin keeler (my first was a Vivacity 20). She is a great little boat.

I have done a number of upgrades including: treating the bottom with an epoxy barrier paint; resurfacing the decks with Treadmaster non-skid; adding an autopilot (one of the best additions for any singlehander), a depth sounder and knotmeter, a new compass, and Nicro vent on forward hatch; covering the bulkheads with wood; installing new brass light fixtures and a second battery; adding a teak grate for the cockpit sole; replacing the hull liner with indoor/outdoor carpet; adding new grab rails on coach house, new running rigging, jacklines, lazy jacks, and boom vang; replacing the old running lights with new; adding various racks for dishes, flatware, tools and flashlights, magazines, and books and a medicine chest in heads area; purchasing a self-inflating life raft for safety; running motor controls to the cockpit; etc. etc. I still have a list of projects ti) do on the boat when time permits.

I singlehand SHOREBIRD II most of the time, although I do enjoy sailing with friends and with our granddaughter Stephanie who we are raising.

Sincerely yours,
Craig Anderson
