About the beginnings of Ramona, on behalf of Dennis Allen - 18.02.2009 by François Bouvier
The boat was being paid for by a fellow who was making illegal drugs in a cement mixer. He was caught and went to jail a day or two before the Olympic trials. The Ramona did not qualify probably because of the late crew change. The drug had almost paid Ramona off except for $5000.00.
My grand father , Walter Trepte , paid the balance due on the Ramona , $5000.00. My grand father would go to Driscoll's once a week or so to see friends and look at the boats being built in the yard. Ramona was one of the boats he saw start to finish.
