We are indebted to Good Old Boat magazine (May/June 2008) for the fine cover photo by reknowned marine
photographer Onne van der Wal showing a beautiful Sea Sprite 23 "Scot Free", owned by Herb and Kristin Browne, with
son Jim aboard. In the background is the landmark Mount Hope Bridge connecting Bristol, Rhode Island with Aquidneck Island.
Inside this issue is a wonderful article (with some great additional van der Wal photos) about Clarke Ryder and the good old
Ryder boatshop by prominent nautical writer Joe van Benten.
