About the Owners (present and past)

Greg Koski — We sailed the Maine coast for a season two years ago [2016], first season with the boat, and then sailed in November across the Gulf of Maine in an unpredicted gale, 42 knots of breeze and 12 foot seas! Veneeni was comfortable and sound, sailing under double-reefed mainsail with the autopilot. We tucked into Gloucester for a couple days then headed down through the Cape Cod Canal to Padanaram, and finally to Stonington, CT where we wintered over on the hard at Dodson's Boatyard. Great place!

Bob Hutchinson — My Lord Nelson is hull # 49, which I bought in 1987. It is a 1986 model, equipped with a 55 hp Yanmar. It is presently moored in Pemaquid Harbor, Maine. I've made three lovely trips to the Bahamas with it, and if I could find the right woman, would take another. But age is catching up with me, I'm now 81, and know I have to sell it before too many years. I've been extremely lucky health-wise, so am still agile enough to do some sailing (In fact, I'm going out tomorrow to just "fool around" going wherever the wind takes us for the day. In the twenty seven years I've owned the boat, I've drawn attention and questions from others who look at her. I've never seen a boat (of similar size) that I'd swap her for.
