Rum from the stern
Champagne off the bow
Cheerio Two is a star even now

Handy new footage of Errol's old yawl:

    Nice…it sounds like something Errol would do; bottles on each end… wish they would have shown the boat a little beter, angle wise. I never heard of that boat of any Errol’s ownerships before this. Nice find for owner…

      I am uncertain when Errol is believed to have owned this, Sergio. I recall reading that, when he owned it, it was called “Morocco”. That sounding so much like Sirocco, however, I have to wonder if someone confused or conflated the name. I wish I knew when Flynn owned it, and how much he actually sailed it.

    Nobody beats you at unearthing Errol`s unknown paths, Groundhog Tim. Looks like a Monday to Friday version of the ZACA. I wonder if that`s her:www.theerrolflynnblog.com…

    Do we know the source of the info stating Flynn owned this boat? First time I’ve ever heard of his attachment to this yawl, too. ?????

      Ahoy to The Zaca! A higher authority has the answer to your question.
      For now, I can only say: Yes, Errol did own this awesome yawl.

      Ahoy to The Zaca and all of yawl:

      The answer is:

      Errol owned and sailed the above-depicted yawl in 1937, before he purchased Sirocco.

      Great Thanks to Flynnmeister Karl Holmberg for this very hard to ferret info! Many thanks and Cheerio, Karl!
