1967 Corinthian 41 Tri. One of the first fiberglass production multihull designs built in the U.S. Ted Irwin design, his only multihull design. I have hull #12 of 28 built, last one built 1993. Beam of 24.5' single engine and she will motor turn within her own length. She has a skeg hung rudder. Center Cockpit. She has a draft of 35".

Ketch rigged, both masts have been upgraded and replaced, she is on her second engine, Perkins 104/50 HP, motor cruises at 7kts. She was rewired 3 years ago.

Currently on the hard for painting and upgrades to various systems. Fiberglass in good shape. She was a bit ahead of her time as she was built with Balsa Core which was used above the waterline and on the decks to make her strong and light. She is very similar to a Piver Victress 40 in design, though her amas are asymmetrical, which aid in pointing.

1936 Chris Craft Cruiser 30' - of the 19 built this is the last one known of. she is currently on the hard for complete rebuild. She has twin Chris Craft straight Eights, 65HP each.

My William Atkin design "Captain Cicero" will be turning 40 this spring and is in better shape now than when she was launched (better engine, upgraded rigging, two speed winches, better sails, fiberglass over wood w/poly resin was replaced with fiberglass using epoxy resin, epoxy barrier coat, cabinetry rebuilt, electronics, cooking upgrade, new hatches, very fancy compass w/bronze binnacle and brass compass guard/pedestal , etc...) all make a far better boat than when she was launched. Every part of this boat is incredibly sound all the work I have done has left me with a very good feeling about my boat.

1986 Northern 37 Ketch. Built in Canada, first owners in Calif. 2nd owners in Oregon, but they cruised the Carribean for over a decade. We bought her the end of last year and moved her up to New Bern, NC where we are working at getting her and ourselves ready to return to the islands. If there are any other Northern owners, I'd like to get in touch.

I'm the lucky new companion of a 1973 Viking 33. we just found each other at the end of last summer and we're still getting acquainted. She needs some love but she is a fine vessel! We've named her Lolita
