Finding Moyie

her original name

Before Azura was transported, Bryan brought home her bell which I don’t think had been cleaned in years. It sat on the windowsill until I finally decided to break out the Brasso. I chose a warm day so I could have the windows open because Brasso can be stinky.

After a good hour of elbow grease, I made a discovery. Moyie! The day we bought Azura her owner at the time told us that the sailboat was originally named Moyie. It was quite faint but I could still see the letters engraved in the bell. I adore tradition and history so this was a neat find.

When we put the bell back in place on Azura we had visitor come to inspect.
