If you remember back on September 2014, the Club undertook its annual "Down The Bay" cruise. Not having a VHS radio on board, I was limited to the range of a hand held. It was inevitable that the Constance Marie would separate from the fleet and so it did. Upon rejoining the fleet, it was dubbed, the Constantly Missing. Well I thought I would create a testimonial to that term of endearment.

You can see that the Constantly Missing is a Walker Bay that I found snuggled under some brush. Dirty, needed some patching and a whole bunch new paint.

It took about three days to re-work her. When I put the 2.5hp Yammie on her, the stern was barely three inches above the waterline. I use the Constantly Missing to row out to the Constance Marie on calm days. It's good exercise and the peace that passes understanding is usually my companion.
