Ivan says:

We used the barge one or two years for Spud Cup. I believe it belonged to Erik Thompson. Afterwards we procured a 17’ motor boat that was used as a committee boat for three years. It was too small and the steering didn’t work so you had to sit in the rear of the boat and steer the outboard. Rob Berube, who was working for UPS found the current Committee Boat over in Usk, WA. He called and we procured the boat in two days.
On board were Mary Henriksen, Thor Seborg and the rest is a guess. I took the picture from a J/105 I was crewing on.
