42' ELIZA, LANSTON'S OFFICE
I LANSTON TYPE COMPANY I GERALD GIAMPA I
¶ LANSTON TYPE COMPANY'S head office is now aboard this bridge deck motor yacht, presently moored in Seattle. The vessel is getting prepared for its voyage to Halfmoon Bay, British Columbia, Canada.
I forgave the previous owner for naming her the 'Eliza' after he had told me the no-where-to-be-found dinghy was named 'Doolittle'. My forgiveness is reliant on my sense of humour, not for an ill conceived sentimental appreciation for the play. There is nothing more obnoxious than properly enunciated English. It's kinda condescending ain't it?
After refitting she will make for an excellent office/studio. Elco is short for the Electric Launch Company. This vessel shares the same aft cabin stateroom attributes of a 38 footer they designed and built and launched for Errol Flynn's honeymoon.
Mike Parker departs: 'Which honeymoon?'
OH ELIZA, WHERE IS DOOLITTLE?
SHIP'S SKIFF GOES A.W.A.L.
