    Default Correia Skiff

    I'm looking for any information I can find about a class of flat-bottomed, lapstrake quahog skiffs built by Albert (or Alfred) Correia of New Bedford. He ran a boatshop from (I think) the 30's to the 60's and produced a series of 10', 12' and 14 foot boats. Multiple Google searches have turned up nada. I'm hoping to find, if not lines plans, then at least an original example that I can take lines off of.

    Thanks in advance for any help.
    Cheers...

    Dave

    Have you talked to the North Dartmouth Historical Society?
