Our RED Boat was designed by Ed Rutheford and built by
, in Sidney, British Columbia. He splashed in 1996, then headed up to Juneau and eventually to the south Pacific for a few years of sailing, island-hopping and general merriment.
We bought RED in 2006 and sailed him (back) to Alaska for four years before heading south. Five years later, we’ve done the ‘Coconut Milk Run’ and are still sailing around the South Pacific!
