On January 14th, the 2nd boat of 2021 changed hands: Steve Emmes of Orcas Island Yacht Club sold Enigma (hull #79), to Patrick Morrison and Robyn Hilles of Bellingham, WA. Robyn has crewed on race boats before, but Patrick is new to sailing, and they plan on doing a mix of racing and cruising in their new boat. Patrick also mentions that he's looking forward to their 4-and-a-half-month-old son, Bruce, growing up with the boat and developing an appreciation and protective sense of the marine and natural world on it, not to mention respect for the wind...
With a green hull, Enigma was listed for US$10,500 and was previously owned by Chris White who brought the boat up to spec after he bought it from Oregon back in 2015. The boat came with a Measurement Certificate and measured in perfectly. It also came with lots of extra equipment and features including, but not limited to:
- A new top and bottom paint job 1 year ago
- A single axle custom-build Martin 242 trailer with new tires, new bearings, races and seals, and a ramp launch extended tongue
- A 2015 MG Marine rudder
- A 2015 MG Marine boom
10 foot Livingston dinghy
Welcome to the Regional Fleet, Patrick, Robyn, and Bruce, and enjoy your first M242!
