Subject: [AtkinBoats] LOOKING FOR TRENDAWAY
I'm looking for a boat I used to own in Sausalito, CA in the
early '70s. She ia a 36' Atkin design ketch named Trendaway - LOA
about 42'. I don't believe the name would have been changed because
it was carved into the transom (but of course, anything is possible).
She is built from mahogany over oak frames in approx 1942, 12 tons
and was also documented with the number carved into an overhead
support in the main salon.
She had an unfortunate accident where she broke away from a mooring
behind Ondine's and actually ran into the Spinaker restaurant in
Sausalito - cracked a few frames and broke her mizzen in half. I sold
her the following year to someone from Antioch, CA whose name I can't
This was not her first accident. She had a much more serious one in
Roatonga where her port side sustained damage when she caught up on
Black Rock. There was quite a story in getting her off, but that was
before we met...
The web site picture URL- she is all the way at the bottom of the

whereabouts in CA (probably).

- Yes, I checked also about 2 years ago and didn't find anything. I also
emailed and called the harbormaster in Antioch, but got no reply. I've
been gone from CA so long I no longer know anybody there who might
know. The man I sold her to had a last name that reminded me of a bread
manufacturer, i.e. Langendorf. Sounds crazy, but that's what I
remember. I'm going to post to the Wooden Boat magazine also - maybe
somebody will remember. We used to be docked just down from Wander
Bird, a famous 85 ft pilot schooner, in the main basin in Sausalito. I
suppose someone could change her name - not the most romantic name, but
it's supposed to be from a poem by Samuel Coleridge, but I've never
