    One source indicates that when Errol owned this beautiful yawl, he called it the “Morocco”. Unlike yachts made for most all Hollywood stars and moguls, the 1931 Cheerio was made for true, high-speed sailing. It was renamed Cheerio II after Errol’s ownership of it.

      Not at all, Genene. I always love seeing your posts and comments, even more so wonderful because they cone in from Errol’s hometown!

      I haven’t been able to determine when Errol owned the Cheerio/Morocco. If it was his primary boat in California, as a boat this size woud be for most people, I suppose that limits the possible timeframes to either his pre-Sirocco days or till after the Zaca’s last days in LA. So, would that be 35-37, or sometime during the 1950s. Or, perhaps, he owned it simultaneously with the Sirocco and/or Zaca – or not really at all?? … Another Flynnian mystery (to me at least!)
