Donna Lee

After Wendy, Donna Lee was the famous Capt. CaCa’s second boat. She had one of the longest running 6-71s in history. It was installed, used, before WW II. When he keyed his mike to speak, I knew who it was before he said a word.

Brother George says he remembers that day in Nellie’s Cove. We were trying to get Ron to bring us something in his dinghy but it was blowing Billy be Damned and he couldn’t make any headway so he gave up. (Note the buffalos charging offshore.)

I bet Ron $20 that George could paddle the SportYacht over with a bin board since we had no oars. He did it but decided he’d use Ron’s oars for the upwind trip back. ~1978
