My condolences on your loss. I believe I now own Capt. Nichol's sailboat, the S&S 36 formerly "Wandering Star". I am finishing a major overhaul of the boat now christened "Carina" and on the hard at the West River Yacht Harbor in Galesville, MD. I bought the boat from Jerry Mullins whose documents on prior owners have led me to make this inquiry.

Thank you for your kind post Warren...although I was the original owner of Wandering Star, my Dad enjoyed many hours sailing her and spending time with family and friends on her. Please feel free to contact me at if you would like to discuss "Carina".

Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the family of Capt. Bob. In his Naval retirement he gave his all to St. Patrick's Church, Rockville as the Head Arimathean, and Lector. His service will be long-remembered. Thank-you Capt. Bob.

Thank you for your kind words. I remember when you came over to the house after our Mom died and visited Dad. The St Patrick's family meant a lot to him. All our best to you and your family
