  1. I owned and cruised Windblown from around 1971 to 89 or 90. I bought her from Ike Munroe in Ft. Lauderdale FL. Wonderful boat, I miss her! James Kunc jameskunc@aol.com

  2. I worked for a period on the restauration of Windblown at the ESOAM Boatyard, Portoferraio, Elba,Tuscany in 2002/3. The Company undertaking the work was Legno Di Mare. I left before the work was completed and I often wonder what became of theis marvellous little craft.....
