A similar design was produced for the 2007 Reunion. This version was available for sale at the 2013 Reunion.
The same upper photo is circa 1967, and the background photo in this one was changed from the earlier version. This one shows Sabalo in her original configuration on her first day 'at sea' in the Delaware River in 1945 with Philadelphia in the background. A similar image is on the web site at:
This high quality, printed poster with semi-gloss finish measures 16 1/2" x 21" and is suitable for framing with a suitable border matte in a standard 18 x 24 frame which can be found inexpensively in many stores.

A wheel book* for the discriminating Sabalo sailor!If you can't remember what a 'wheel' book is:
has slots for credit cards / etc.
*Wheel Book = The government had in its inventory for all agencies and branches of service, small, green, semi hard cover note books with the word "Memoranda" in script diagonally across the cover. Anyone carrying such a book around in their shirt pocket had the slang title given of 'Big Wheel', hence it was called a 'wheel book'.
