JohnRPollard Hey, that's a good looking boat!

I have no idea about it's origins, though. You might try contacting the boat shop at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michael's. They may have an inkling.

P.S. Welcome to Sailnet!

sailingdog It could be a one-off, home built boat... with no traceable history.

looking for history

I have owned every sort of sailboat from prams to cruisers, sold some, lost some to hurricanes, cut up one or two with a chainsaw, but this boat has stuck. I know it is at least 50 years old as it decorated a nautical gift shop in Delaware for many years. It was built on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, I found it hanging from the rafters of a barn in North Carolina. It is heavily constructed of 1 1/4 Teak over oak. The teak is just as sweet as the day it was built. I refastened it with stainless but did not have to replace any wood. The centerboard is not stainless and has some surface corrosion but no degradation. It sails like a lightning, in fact dimensionally it's almost a lightning but heavier . I think the "doghouse" was added later as the quality is not quite as good. Someone spent a lot of time and money building this boat, any chance any of you old timers recognize it. Thanks Thom
