"Vol Au Vent II"
1970 Mariner 40 - Hull# 63
Owners: Byron & Lynda Wood, Newport Beach, Ca. USA
Vol au Vent II was built in Japan in 1970. She is a fiberglass hull
that was commissioned by Joan & Kent Enderly of Los Angeles, CA. Byron
& Linda Wood have owned and lived aboard for over 15 years. For the
last 5 years we have been restoring her. She now has all new decks, cockpit,
cabin sides, various beams, new electrical, Sterling paint etc. The mahogony
interior has been stripped, sanded, stained & varnished. We will soon
start work on the masts. In the early stages of the renovation, Andrew
Matthewson, master shipwright, was very active in the project, otherwise
we have done all of our own work. So, we'll get it done when we get it
We heard about this website from Clair Oberly's son, Matt (?). He was cruising by and said "My dad built that boat!"
