Emerald was owned and run by Glen Miller till he built the Coral Sea. Hurricane was run by A captain named Babcock, and his wife, Rusty, worked the galley. When you leaned against the main cabin on that boat in a swell, you could feel it move out of synch with the hull.

As for Emerald, I believe it was originally built in the 1880s and used in Lake Tahoe. Still operating in the 1970s it was (I believe) the oldest still operating documented vessel in California.

Stay wet...
