This is a picture out of a 1986 sailing magazine when Albion was called "Whale and the Bird" and belonged to the chairman of the O'Day corporation. It was the poster boat for O'Day that year and the next and appeared in many magazines.
Soon after Albion was picked up in Anacortes, WA, we spent our get acquainted period sailing in the San Juan Islands, before we headed down the coast to the Columbia River.
Albion with her new owners (Brent & Molly) as she arrived at her new home at Tomahawk Bay Marina, Portland, Oregon in the summer of 1996.
And below, getting ready to go cruising.
Enjoying a sunny day on the Columbia River sailing wing-on-wing just off the airport.
Just after our retirement in 1999, Albion was sailed to Mexico where she has been cruising ever since. This picture is off Mazatlan, Mexico on the way to Puerto Vallarta.
And this is Albion at anchor at sunset in Matenchen Bay, San Blas, Mexico
