I am looking for information about a wooden sailboat built ca. 1943-45 in New Jersey by someone named Tarbell. I am not a boating expert, so I can not say the category of boat, but it is small (fits 2-3 people), with a main sail and a jib. It had a metal centerboard, and was allegedly made out of the kind of wood that was sold for venetian blinds; two layers of the wood are glued across each other. The details are mahogany.
I would be interested in any information about the boat builder, the boat, or suggestions for where I can look fo rmor einformaiton.
Thank you.
