We had a fascinating visit to Brent’s project boat, Ricochet, a 1956 46′ Kettenburg PCC (Pacific Cruising Class) Sloop which he’s working on at Shelter Island Marina, Richmond. Since the club last visited the boat in 2014, he’s done a LOT of work on building out the interior and the deck.

From her mahogany transom and toe-rails to the beautiful teak decking, the work and materials are top-notch, and she’s looking amazing!

Brent treated us to a pleasant picnic aboard, and with the wind buffeting the shelter, it felt like we were afloat on the sea!

After thoroughly crawling over and inspecting the boat, we went for a walk around the rest of the marina, looking at the other boats getting work done on them.

It’s fascinating to see boats above ground, and their scale is enormous!

One of the other boats is a sister-ship to Ricochet, getting a lot of her planking replaced, also with mahogany.

It was a wonderful time at the marina, and so great to see Brent’s progress on Ricochet!
