Looking For A Picture Of An Emerald Green Westsail 32

This query is a little complicated. I wrote a novel, Nightmare Voyage and the main charater is a sailing charter captain who has an emerald green Westsail 32. I know that is not a stardard color, but I own a navy blue Pacific Seacraft 31 and though it would be fun to have Capt Linda (my heroine) have a similiar boat, but a different color. Anyway, part of this whole thing was based on reverance for the late Bill Creelock, who all of us owe a huge debt of gratitude to, for designing both boats. (By the way, I circunavigated on mine, thanks Bill). So, I am looking for a picture of an emerald green Westsail 32 that I can show my fans, so they can have an appreciation for what a great boat Dark & Stormy (the Westsail 32 in my novels) is. Can anyone help? Please E-mail me at captmarlena@yahoo.com

Cheers,

Capt. Marlena

One of the photos in this collection is an emerald green W32.

Werner - nice catch... here is the thumb nail.

Capt. Marlena - another thought is to find the WS 32 image you like and have a Computer Graphic Artist (ie not me) change the hull color to what ever you want - now days pretty simple. Also when you book is released - I'd be happy to add a link to our site for our members to purchase etc.

Hi Jay,

Some years ago, there was a beautiful emerald green W32 out of Annapolis belonging to Jerry, whose last name I can't remember. Great guy I met at a roundup in Solomons Island about 10 years ago. Maybe Abel Dominguez knows the boat.

My first and only sail boat was a Cal 24 with shoal draft keel and swing center board on a trailer - it had a emerald green hull also -- hand painted and it did look good - but I've also had comments that cruising in hot climates - the darker decks and hull make for it hotter inside the boat.

That looks like Galena sailed out of Chesapeake area by Bill Shaw, currently in Cartagena, Columbia. More photos on his website; http://www.sv-galena.com/

Bill Shaw has posted more images of his Galena W32 and her green hull... I've added the photo's to the front of Galena in Westsails at play slide show - in the member only section.

Lots of new pictures on his blog site. He just went through the canal and is now in a new ocean, soon heading for the South Seas. Ken
