This beautiful boat was Peter Hamilton’s, who sailed her from England to Quebec in 1956, where he laid her up for the winter. Then, joined by his wife, they sailed together down the East Coast of America, through the Panama Canal, then on to Tahiti, before returning to California.  He described his journey in his book The Restless Wind.

If there is one thing that swung my decision to buy Drumler, it was watching this video of Salmo on YouTube.  It doesn’t get much better than this..
