James and Regina Judd of Littleton Colorado have graciously volunteered their skills in underwater photography to help in documenting the General Pershing's rudder for redesign. They will plan a short vacation to Monterey to assist in the "Rudder Project." The couple has traveled the globe in search of scuba diving adventures.
Near home, James can be found under water feeding sharks in the aquarium's shark tank.

In 2010, 4th generation Siino, Ben Siino, special education teacher in Oakland, California brought a few of his students on a field trip to Monterey to see newly arrived General Pershing, owned by his father and uncles. They were invited to board the vessel and took a short trip around the Monterey Bay. (Bay & Delta Yachtsman August, 2010)
