Re: Wood Boats (maintenance & performance)







used to be maintained in catskill, ny--now is under restoration for 111 bday--commissioned in 1903-- eleanor. was actively sailed yearly from 1903 until 1995, many times solo by the owner who bought used in 1952, for either 50 bux or free...(per family rumor)
sleek, fast, fun to sail--gaff rigged.

defect in port bow was caused by a power boat at speed crashing into it--temporary patch done by owner while under way. owner wearing funny well earned via merchant marine academy and history of working hat--was a true captain---and looking very irish
