 WOODEN SHIPS      (Crosby, Stills, Kantner)

Stills:  If you smile at me, I will understand
   'Cause that is something everybody everywhere does
    in the same language
Crosby:  I can see by your coat, my friend
    you're from the other side
    There's just one thing I got to know
    Can you tell me please, who won?
Stills:  Say, can I have some of your purple berries?
Crosby:  Yes, I've been eating them for six or seven weeks now
    haven't got sick once
Stills:  Probably keep us both alive

Wooden ships on the water, very free and easy
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline, let us be
Talkin' 'bout very free and easy..
Horror grips us as we watch you die
All we can do is echo your anguished cries
Stare as all human feelings die
We are leaving - you don't need us

Go, take your sister then, by the hand
lead her away from this foreign land
Far away, where we might laugh again
We are leaving - you don't need us

And it's a fair wind, blowin' warm
Out of the south over my shoulder
Guess I'll set a course and go...

Crosby, Stills & Nash

This yacht is a CLASSIC WOODEN SAILBOAT in look, in design
and in performance. MAYAN has been owned for more than 40 years by
David Crosby
of Crosby Stills and Nash. It was very extensively rebuilt
(>$600k) in 2005 by Wayne Ettel in Wilmington, CA. The details of the
rebuild were featured in WoodenBoat magazine #187/66. The boat is a
very powerful design that takes the weather very well. The cabin layout
is very traditional but easily sleeps eight in three staterooms plus a large
saloon double berth. The boat has been continuously upgraded since 2005
with the addition of new electronics and continuous maintenance by paid
hands. A very valuable 76ft end tie is available for transfer to the new
owner in Santa Barbara, CA
