Colorful and all left in good order, right down to their carefully coiled bow lines, I came across these little 8' El Toro center boards, just like the ETs and Sabots my husband learned to sail on as a kid in the Newport Beach, CA Parks & Recreation program. Only theirs weren't tricked out with flames and bright colors! I spied these old summertime friends of many children up on the dock at the Center for Wooden Boats while out for an evening walk. Wishing you all a good start to a great weekend!
