Email This Page to a FriendPreview: Walkabout at Brooklin Boat Yard, Part 3 – 10/14/12
October 14, 2012
Here is a great reason why I am having so much fun with this walkabout post. Midweek I says to myself, “Hey self, why don’t you go have a look at what else is going on around here.” I was enamored of the scene I found in the service bay. JABBERWOCKY is a beautiful Friendship sloop and, while not built of wood, she was made from a mold taen from an original named DICTATOR built by Rob McLain on Bremen Long Island around 1904. I feel this is one of the most handsome designs of the type. In front of JABBERWOCKY is a sweet little lapstrake whitehall that’s in for a new oak keel shoe. While I spend six months to a year building a single new boat, the guys in service bay get to see many.
