More About Stormy Weather - Design 27

Here are a couple of additional images from another source.



I believe that is Polly LeBoutillier, daughter of the owner, Mr. Philippe LeBoutillier, with the champagne bottle in the image above.

  1. As a young boy i used to sail on Stormy Weather. At that time in the 60's she was moored at Sewawanaka Yacht Club, and the topsides were a dark maroon as i remember..absolutely stunning....
