I bought a strip planked 13' melonseed in Maryland this weekend. It was home built in 2001, has a green hull, beige decks, tanbark sail. Anyone know who built it?

I saw the boat at a gas station in Frederick MD last week. It was very nice. I talked to the owner but dont remember his name. He did not mention it was for sale though.

Bring her to our messabout next Sat (I posted it last week in people and places). For the last several years we have had about 6 melonseeds show up - most of them 1 off wood boats. There is also a melonseed race - but you do not have to race if you do not want to.

I found out more about her by searching the melonseed forun on yahoo. She was built in Frederick, and was apparently a last minute donation to CBMM. Thanks for the invite Phil, I probably can't make it, but I'll check. I hope to have more time in the next couple of years to make all kinds of small boat rendevous. Thank you both.
