Snakes Breed in Anacortes

Trevor DiMarco and Dustin Johnson of AYC acquired a  Viper 640 to join Dan Holden's Wise Asp and Orsini/Johns' Kaa growing the local fleet to three.  Smiling from ear to ear, DiMarco/Johnson got a great deal on Hull #144 which had been unused in Seattle and sold last year to her second owner in Sand Point, ID.  Here too she was lightly used and went back on the market with some nice upgrades.  DiMarco/Johnson will have plenty of help getting her rigged and in the water from the crews of the other two AYC boats.  With two Vipers close by in Vancouver, BC and one coming up from Olympia, Viper 640s  will ensure their own start at this year's Tulip Regatta and other major buoy races sponsored by AYC.  Kaa is currently in southern California but will return to her home base following the  San Diego NOOD March 13-15.  It is going to be a fun season for the Snakes.
