Sundowner tug fan?

I bought (used) and read Signals from Po Tolo ... Po Tolo is a 36' Sundowner tug and I thought perhaps a fan might be interested in owning the book. It's used and not pristine but the price (free) is decent.

I don't want to drop it off at the thrift store if a boater would like it.

Let me know. Thanks!

I now own Po Tolo and adore her! And here's a story of the sea. When I bought her asked if I could change her name to something more "shippy" befitting a tug. Didn't know origin of her name. Turns out Po Tolo is this star that he Dogon tribe in Africa are supposed to have discovered. That's an urban legend...however I lived with the Dogon and did a photo book on them. How weird is that?

Welcome to the forum BlazingContent, Congratulation on owning a fantastic configuration pleasure trawler! That it has history is even better.

That is a coincidence, for certain. Congratulations on your Po Tolo. It's good to know she's still plying the waters. I didn't notice -- are you in Canada or California?

As I recall the boat was in Maine/New England during the book.

What was your opinion of the book, Janice?

In another coincidence, I bought my first trawler (the Romsdahl I've mentioned previously) from Sundowner Tugs in Seattle - it was a brokerage boat they had on the board. And I used to have a tribal art store in Seattle. Here's the Dogon ladder I still have in the corner of our dining room:

Amazing!

That's amazing. Your Romsdahl looks beautiful! Do you have any interesting adventures coming up I could report on? I just wrote and photographed the cover story for October PassageMaker and am always looking for good stories on character boats. You can contact me offline at blazing content@yahoo.com.

PS How did you purchase the Dogon ladder? I would love to buy one. It's on the cover of my book, Dogon, Africa's People of the Cliff, now out of print. But it can be purchased at Dogon : Africa's People of the Cliffs: Stephenie Hollyman, Walter E. A. Van Beek, W. E. A. Van Beek: Amazon.com: Books

if it's Janice (who has the Po Tolo book) you'e seeking, try sending a PM (Personal Message) here or through my website (link in signature)

Otherwise, please excuse the interruption.

The book is okay. It reads almost like a blog with pictures added. It's been ages since I opened it. This was not a Keeper though few books make that exalted status on a 23' boat!

I'm clearing clutter and am happy to pass it along to someone here versus dropping it off at a thrift store. Postage would be great.
