Wellington 47

I knew Bill Wellington of Jacksonville, FL. He was about 65 in 1990. He built and designed motor sailers on the north west side of Jacksonville, FL. As I know most of his boats were built upon order. He worked on 1 to 2 boats at a time. He and his wife had a boat at Continental Yacht Club, Orange Park, FL (just south of Jacksonville). He designed and built boats for fairly wealthly clients in Eastern US. The boat I am familiar with was black 61 to 63 feet long and had a full time year around crew aboard. The original design I believe was from an old full keeled wood boat he owned. He had two employees who did most of the work, unfortunately I do not know their names.
