I'm looking for any information about my grandfather, the designer Frank C. Paine, who was most active in the Boston area in the 20s and 30s and produced such boats as the J-boat Yankee, the Bermuda Race record-holder Highland Light, and the fishing schooner Gertrude Thebaud, along with a number of Meter boats and Universal Rule yachts. I would love to uncover someone who sailed with him, but it would be great simply to discover the locations of his boats still extant.

My nephew is hoping to write about him, and we search out info for that reason.
