Our old friend from Muskegon and Grand Valley, Walt Koch, died about 15 years ago. He was a one-of-a-kind individual and sailor, and we always thought that his boat, Sanctuary, was one-of-a-kind also.
But here in Boot Key Harbor, anchored about five boats away, is a sister ship, another Cay sailboat. Like Walt’s boat, this Cay is fitted out in idiosyncratic style–nothing looks “yachty,” but everything looks functional. A very practical sailboat.
Fond memories of Walt.
