Introduction by Bill Mayher, Co-Founder of OCH

Dave Bradley was a hero to a lot of us here in Brooklin.  A great sailor, a good friend and story teller, a warm-hearted host who welcomed a lot of us to his cottage on the shore, just when the sun was passing over the yardarm. Most of all, however, Dave Bradley was the skipper of a boat called MISCHIEF, a boat that we all loved.

Good boats are born good boats, and Dave’s Herreshoff S-Boat MISCHIEF was surely one of these.  But good boats can become great boats because of the way in which they are used, and no one used a boat better than Dave used MISCHIEF.  From the time he was sixteen to the year before his death at ninety-three, Dave sailed the bejeezus out o MISCHIEF from Cape Cod to the Bay of Fundy. He was a lucky man and she was a lucky boat.
