Anyone know anything about the Casey Boatbuilding Company of Fairhaven, MA (USA)?
I'm trying to research my boat, and this is where she was built.

I know they were in business in 1941 at least, as that's when the boat was built.

This has come up before and the John Alden book was mentioned. In addition, "A Picture History of Fairhaven" Spinner Publications and Waldo Howland's "A Life in Boats: The Concordia Years" also contain some info about Casey boatbuilding, though probably not enough to research your boat.
A Charles Wesgate who worked there as a carpenter was a source of two pictures in the Spinner publication. Whether he is still alive after 15 years and would recollect, I don't know.
