In 1968 we purchased a Victory class 21 ft sloop in a slip at Santa Barbara Harbor. We named it Niord, after the Norse God of the Winds.

Our slip had a boat bath, a vinyl tub with floatation at the top and a drawstring at the back. When the boat was in the slip and bath the drawstring was pulled up and chlorine was poured in the tub to kill marine growth. The harbor and our boat/slip were fouled by the 1969 oil spill. Union Oil replaced the bath and mooring lines and had the boat cleaned in drydock.
