Old Fleet Log

Here are listings from the former Fleet Log from about 2005 to 2009. I have copied them simply for posterity. Our up-to-date membership list is found under membership. This format to keep track of members is nice, but does not fit with our new software.I hope everyone will write a much more detailed boat history and submit it to be included under the  submenu Boat Histories.

Info I had this boat built originally in 1982. I also bought a Triad trailer and Dyer Dinghy with it. The dinghy was stolen in 1984, and I sold the boat and trailer in 1987 because I needed the money. I found the boat for sale on the website of Eastern Yacht Sales in Hingham in 2003, had a survey done, and I bought the boat back in January of 2004, and now it sits in my back yard in Clemmons, NC. My wife and I are building a new residence in Deltaville, Virginia on the south shore of the Rappahannock River about four miles west of the delta on the Chesapeake. We will move there in November of 2007, and the boat will finally see the water in the Spring of 2008. She needs a little fixing up and cleaning. I am very glad to have her back, and the next time she is for sale is after I have made my final voyage.

Info Our boat built in 1982, the third to be dubiously marketed as “owner completion” by the sales team at C.E. Ryder, still awaits to be finished!  It rolled from the Bristol factory basically a hull, blank interior plug, and of course the deck mated together with the engine installed as well.  Its original owner brought it up to  Penobscot Bay, and there it sailed when new.  He retired to Florida, and the boat sat on its poppets for close to ten years up in Northport Maine.  We bought it, removed the dead squirrels, and old oak leaves pulled the diesel for overhaul, and began the many years of finishing, and upgrading.

Contact: showerbuddy@prexar.com
Info I purchased Sand Dollar three years ago (2003) down in Norfolk Virginia. She is currently moored in the Town of Owls Head, Maine in Rockland Harbor. When I went to Virginia to look at the boat before purchasing, I could see a faint outline of the boats original hailing port, Owls Head, ME. At that point I figured it was meant to be. I did a lot of research before deciding on the Sea Sprite 30 and have not been disappointed, she is a wonderful vessel. My wife Lisa, our two young children and I spend about 5 weeks of the summer, cruising the coast of Maine. She has proved to be as seaworthy as she is beautiful. I am beginning the fourth year of a five year upgrade plan, having just stripped the bottom paint off in preparation for barrier coating in the spring. I was pleased to find no evidence of blistering under the many years of old paint. The list of upgrades completed is a long one, and there seems to always be something to add to the upgrades to do list, but it is a labor of love. Fair Winds

Owner: THOMAS SHIPPEE
Hailing Port: JEFFERSON, ME
Contact: SHIPPEE@TIDEWATER.NET
Info This boat was originallypurchased to be completed by the owner. The first owner completed about 90 percent of the work and sailed it in Maine waters for about eight years. It then spent the next seven years on the hard and neglected. I purchased the boat in August 2005 and spent the winter 2005-2006 doing significant cleaning updating and restoration. Major efforts included addition of a galley and fit finish work to the interior. Upgrades included addition of pressurized hot and cold water, roller furling with new 130 genoa and GPS. The hull was severely oxidized, but five passes with compound and buffer brought back a beautiful luster to the hull. Relaunch was June 27 2006. A little more fit and finish will be completed this winter and she will be finished.
She now sails the mid coast of Maine out of South Bristol and Johns Bay.

Owner: DEAN MCCHESNEY
Hailing Port: OLD SAYBROOK, CT
Contact: DESIGN@MCFUN.NET
Info Bought this boat in 1990 from the original owner in Blue Hill, Maine. Traded my SS28, hull #35, plus $ for her. He wanted to move down in size and i up in size. Couldn’t have worked out better. Don’t know if he still has the 28. She has a cutter rig with bow sprite,”Cape Dory” ports–all the same size–and a tiller. I get quite a workout on reaches, but it does give me quite a lot of room in the cockpit at anchor.

    My Uncle Ed has hull number 4
    He purchased the boat new in the mid-1950s
    The boat was continuously sailed in the Barnegat Bay right up until hurricane Sandy
    In Sandy the boat was pretty beat up and the mast was lost
    Anyone know where I could purchase a new mast for his Sea Sprite 23?
