New Owner of Pearson Vanguard “Isola Bella”. Hull #30.
« on: September 29, 2020, 06:44:12 AM »
Greetings everyone.  My name is Doug and I recently purchased this 1963 Vanguard, currently in Washington NC.  In need of a lot of TLC, but looking forward to the challenge.  If anyone knows of this boat (Isola Bella, Bristol, RI) I would love to know more about her adventures.  From old papers left aboard, I know she took a trip to the Virgin Islands back in ‘08.  Hopefully, more of that in store!

Took a week off this week to continue the cleanup and get to know her better. 

Having trouble uploading a pic from the iPad, but will add later.

Cheers all!
-Doug

Hi Doug,

Welcome aboard! Here's a great article about three Vanguards coming in 1,2 and 3 at the Good Old Boat Regatta on the Chesapeake.
