John and his family must have been very busy sanding and painting, because Kyma looked years younger when we returned for a second visit. Buddy was truly impressed with John’s work and admitted that he was pleasantly surprised by the progress he had made. “I have been working hard just about every weekend,” John said. “I’m trying to get it summer-ready and want to ensure that every crack is repaired.”

When we arrived, I told John and his family that his Huckins was a boat custom-built during my father’s tenure and showed them the photos, drawings and article that we had compiled for our visit. We enjoyed a lively discussion about what might have transpired aboard Kyma during her trip across the Central American seaway before delving into our assessment of the yacht’s current state.
