I knew what I was going to write about this week — a Pete Culler design for sale on Eric Dow’s lawn.
But I was out of town — I went to Rockland (ME) to attend an incredible presentation by Christo. What an amazing and charismatic person he is. (More information here: http://www.christojeanneclaude.net)
Eric doesn’t have any photos on his website, so I hurried to his shop yesterday.
Alas, he’d already sold MRS. JONES….
She’s a 24′ design mentioned in Culler’s Skiffs and Schooners book, p. 37. ‘though I squinted and Eric had a magnifying glass, we couldn’t determine the design name.
She was built — and commissioned by — Concordia in 1972. I’m not sure if others were also built at that time.
She’s powered by a 70hp Suzuki.
I can’t tell you much more about her. Perhaps you know details about this class?
And for those of you with incurable boat lust, perhaps I can interest you in this freighter canoe (bottom of the rack) at Eric’s shop? She’s a steal — at $6K….
(Sorry, the poor photos are my doing.)
Here’s Eric’s website: www.dowboats.com. Call him up for more information.
Thanks so much, Carl
