1937 William F Crosby Design?
I got some good help about my Mutineer 15 and now I'd like to ask a question about a boat I'm thinking of buying
It's supposed to be a William F Crosby Design 22' overall length "Judy"
Purchased from the Seattle Maritime museum
Full weighted keel with a 25' mast
Cedar plank construction with canvas over ply decking
Tiny open oval cockpit (about 6x4)
Seems to be a dedicated sailboat with no place for an outboard
Looks like a racer to me
I can't find anything on it on the internet, it looks kind of like a little dragon
It's got some problems, some trim rot and a bit of leagage(water in the boat seeping out in a couple of areas)
also some delaminating of the deck ply (very small areas) near the edge of the deck in places
Needs bottom paint ,sails (hurrah) and cockpit refinishing
Comes with the fine trailer shown
Does anybody know of this design and what would be good things to look for
I'm going to be getting inside her with a flash light to examine the insides as best as I can (being a bowyer ,having some luthier training and having done construction of various sorts I have experience wuith wood..just not boat specific)
Any ideas and or recommendations?
