  • I have a Micro in Cape Cod that I sail every summer in Buzzards Bay. It was built in 2002 by David Jost, who chronicled his labors both here on the Yahoo Bolger Group and on his website. Like you, I am more of a sailor than a builder and am closing in on buying a larger boat. I concur with Mason that Micro is a terrific sailor and while you won't win many races, especially upwind...

  • I may be selling a 2002-built Micro now in Cape Cod. The builder was David Jost and he thoroughly chronicled the quality of his build here on this yahoo group and on his own website. I will sell if a purchase negotiation on another boat works out. --Rob Gogan

  • Interesting question about how to get rid of an unwanted wooden boat... here are a couple of thoughts from a professional recycler: 1. Reusing is always better than disposal. If you can't sell an old boat, donate it to one of the many museums, boatbuilding yards or schools that are looking for projects. "Messing About in Boats" or Wooden Boat" classified ads might tempt a reader to...

  • Good notes on an important topic. Loath as any cruiser is to surrender dry storage space, the foam volume Phil specified fore & aft is an essential element of Micro's seaworthiness. In a knock-down, such as the one described by Bernie Wolfard in one of Elrow LaRowe's early Micro newsletters, which occurred on the windy Columbia River gorge, foam could be the difference between...

  • Thanks for posting the gorgeous photos Bruce! I have about 50 more which my wife Frann took on Sunday. I will try to post them tonight. The low little bright-decked sailing hot rod was designed and built by its sailor, Daniel Noyes of Ipswich MA. He calls it a Bolger-inspired mini-sandbagger. He has designed other boats as well. The rowing canoe rig, an aluminum Radisson from...

  • We just spent a beautiful weekend in Gloucester for Phil Bolger's Memorial. While we were all sad about the cause of our coming together, we greatly enjoyed each other's company and sailing so many Bolger boats. Some preliminary photos from Saturday morning's boat arrivals are now posted in the "Photos" section of this group. There are many more stories, photos and videos to come...

  • Trailer & car) parking is available at the Dun Fudgin ramp on Emerson St behind the high school, $5 per day. It's a good ramp, accessible in all tides, though there's a stiff 2-knot tidal current in the Annisquam River and you have to get the drawbridge tender to raise the road & RR bridge on Channel 13. A little hairy for a motorless Micro sailer like me. The GMHC dock was a good...

  • Thanks for arranging this Susanne, in the midst of everything else. I will be there with my Micro, the 2-by-2. It is green-hulled with a white deck (built by David Jost and launched as the "Firefly"). Looking forward to paying my respects to Phil and being part of the Bolger flotilla on Sunday. If anyone wants to go for a sail on Sat before the service, please call my cell at 617...
