    Saw her underway during the Antique & Classic parade last weekend. Looking fine.

    Nice article and nice boat(s). What sort of engine is in Gramp now?

      From Mystic Seaport’s website: Gramp is powered by a 62 h.p. Westerbeke Model W-70 6-cylinder gas engine connected to a Scripps 1:1 transmission with mechanical engine controls. She has a 11”X 9” 3-blade bronze propeller on a 1 1/8” bronze shaft. She can cruise as 10-12 knots with a top speed of 20 knots. She has a 30-gallon stainless steel fuel tank.

    This year at the WB show, power boats seemed to be more interesting than sailboats. The FayBowen with FB engine, the big Hickman Sea Sled, the 42’s converted Chesapeake deadrise, Newbert and Wallace’s Vixen and of course Gramp. Do we know anything more about the original engine or what she has in her now?

    Saw at the Boat Show and was very impressed. This is a very neat boat, even my wife liked it.

    Doug Hylan’s Top Hat (Pagan being the first constructed) was, I believe, inspired by Gramp. Both are wonderful boats.

      Pagan was commissioned and owned by the Merck family, moored in Coecles Harbor at the same time as Gramp, until finally sold away to Cape Cod owners and onward.
