    I stumbled acrosss a similar design several winter’s ago when visiting the Erie Yacht Club, where I had sailed as a young man (before discovering Maine). She was hauled-outI, but I was drawn to the salty lines, and invited. aboard by the new owner. Loved the layout, though never beffore intrigued by a vessel without sails. She needed a great deal of work. Now, three or four years later, my wife and I have recently retired and returned to the Erie area. Went sailing with my brother and saw the boat again – beautifully restored and afloat in a nearby slip. Beautiful!! Could it possibly be the ELSIE – formerly Joseph H. Stuart? (P.S.: Thanks again, Maynard for your article!)
