Re: Crew for Chesapeake Bay Skipjack

Most of the wood used in restoration was local pine which was cut at Cockrell's. Exceptions are oak around the mast step, and the mast and boom which are of Norwegian Spruce.

I think you might be thinking of the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race. Alas, we are a sloop, so, no. However, there is the Deal Island Skipjack Race and the Choptank Heritage Skipjack Race, both...

Thanks for the comments. I'll pull them and check them that way. At least one of them had a suspect connection, so I'll clean 'em, pull 'em, and see if they warm up.

Where were you when I needed you?? We sold ours about six years ago after having a Pearson Flyer for 11 years out on San Francisco Bay. What a fun boat. Good luck on your search.

I used Dave Manning for "half" a survey once. He was very detailed. He comes off a bit grouchy, but he is a nice guy. When I find my next boat to survey, I am going to use him again.
