    Yeah mark and I picked it up off the trailer in Richmond with the Moore still on the trailer. Hindsight we should have launch mas and used the hoist to lift the keel.

    "There's a 60 foot 110 moored and sailing out of Bainbridge Island, Washington...anyone guess either one of her names?"

    If it's 60 feet,is it still 110?
    Or something else.

    You can me at 8threeone-475-zero2seven8. Both boats are plywood. PEACH's hull # is 655 and MIRACLES is #221. Most of the older boats have been rebuilt, and this is the case with MIRACLEs. PEACH spent a very long time (maybe 40 years ?) living in a dry garage up in the Delta. Both of them are minimum weight or close to it ( MIRACLES 910 lb, PEACH 911 lb.) Sail availability and condition unknown. These boats were loaners for the East Coast contingent at the recent Nationals who brought their own sails packed as golf clubs. You would do yourself a favor to visit IYC, view PEACH and MIRACLES, and talk with Milly, who knows all.

    I am guessing that this is a 410, or a 510. I did not know there were any of these on the west coast- there are several on the east coast. I will ask my 110 friends on Bainbridge Island what they know about it. The 110 is the smallest of the series, after which there is the 210, 310, 410, and 510. There was a design for a 1010, commissioned by the race car driver Briggs Cunningham, but it was never built. Very cool Pic !

    Hey Ian
    You and Mark blew me away picking up the keel like that ! I had ramps, come-a-longs- all kinds of stiff that would have made it take longer, but probably not hurt your backs. I can send you a pic of the new 110 that it went to, up at Port Townsend. It is really sweet ! Nice to hear from you !!!!!

    Yosemite Valley, yesterday, 12/02/22 photos by Joe McKeown, first ascender of historic Coonyard Pinnacle on Glacier Point with Bill Amborn and Rich Calderwood, September, 1960. Joe helped me outfit WILDFLOWER for the 1978 SHTP and was there for the start.

    I sent this pic to sailing friends on Bainbridge Island. I am very curious about it.

    What pic, Milly? If you mean SLIVER aka FRANCIS LEE, she was featured in Wooden Boat 252, Sept./Oct, 2016. I can probably tell you more about the boat..I've been aboard SLIVER with owner Kim Bottles and designer Bob Perry. Kim said SLIVER was influenced by Hunt's 110's and 210's, L.Francis Herreshoff's ROCINANTE, Alex Irving's SPARKLE, and especially Bill Garden's 60' OCEANUS. All these boats were double-enders. Bob Perry also favored double-enders.
