I have been looking into the name ‘Euphemia’. It is Greek for ‘well spoken’ and there is a Christian martyr story. It became popular in Scotland with a number of ‘nobles’ having the name (mostly related to the Stewart’s) and for this reason it became somewhat popular there.
I am trying to determine the most appropriate ‘icon’ for the boat. So far it is the ‘thistle’ – the national flower of Scotland.
Also noticed that dropping the ‘II’ in the boat name is not going to work because someone in Ontario has a ‘Hughes 26’ registered as ‘Euphemia’.
re. John Bentzen
A John Bentzen (Duncan area) owned a couple of tugs around the same time (1969) as a John Bentzen owned Euphemia (1964-1966) (then called Wanderer). John, Leif and Arnie Bentzen owned Shipyard Cove in Maple Bay.
A John Bentzen (Seattle area) is associated with a company called ‘Pacific Ship’ (dissolved 1974).
A John Bentzen (San Francisco area) owned the Alameda Marina selling it sometime before 2016.
I suspect that they are all the same person – who migrated south over time.
I missed out on the impromptu ‘face time’ with Maggie, Valerie, and Seb. I gather Maggie was recharging by hanging out in her room doing math.
Molly is back to school.
Valerie, Molly, Jo, and I took in a movie (first time in 2+ years). ‘Free Guy’ was a good movie.
I got Mavis out for her morning walk and have now taken over the mid-day walk as Molly is back to school. Seb came over and was going to take Mavis out for a walk but Mavis had escaped and did a free-range walk.
