IM000144.jpg (459621 bytes)  It's Official!  Generous donor Mr. Ron Breen of Hanover, PA hands over Windrose, his 18' Laguna sloop, and trailer to Ship 25.  Our new Boatswain, Tim, thanks Mr. Breen on behalf of the Ship.  Mr. Breen cared for Windrose from 4 months after she was new in 1978 until today, 19 June 2002.  Mr. Breen is a retired Navy sonarman who is now moving to Florida with his wife and purchasing a bigger boat.  He found our Ship's web site on the internet and called to ask if we'd like to have Windrose.  Would we ever!  Thanks, Mr. Breen!  May you always have fair winds and following seas in the future.
