Pramela, the Dinghy

Wreckage of Pramela, salvaged from Craig's Creek after the tornado.

Pramela was the perfect tender--light, stable, and  fit exactly across Betty Jane's stern--but, a tornado touched down at Craig's Creek, Kentucky in 2014. Pramela was lying on the forward deck; her usual spot on the aft deck was taken up by repair. The wind picked her up, threw her overboard, capsized her, and sandwiched her between the river and the boathouse crashing down. She was crushed like an egg. Her little sister is Dorothy, so named for having survived the storm.
