    I would like to contact Mr. Greg Foster of NW Historic Watercraft. Last address I have is Whaler Bay British Columbia? I have a boat that was built to his design and would like to ask him some questions.

    Your Whaler Bay waypoint is the last one I heard about. The tale that reached me was that he had found himself to be way too time involved, and cut back on his projects away from home. Rumor was that he wasnn't even answering phones. Sort of like Cleek, I suppose. I don't know if anyone has any more recent contact to relate. Good luck. Care to tell us about your boats?

    Hey all, I have a Greg Foster boat, one of 10 15-foot open sailboats he designed and called "Tent Sailboats". 1975. Wondering if anyone else has one? I can't seem to upload photos or I would. She's a lovely thing, though a bit awkwardly rigged and wondering if anyone has done any modifications to improve the set up.

    I have a '93 Greg Foster boat that was originally built for Steve Eftimiades in Long Island. She is a 17' 2 masted ships jolly boat with a lug rig.

    We are doing a bunch of maintenance on her this spring and I am trying to figure out what was used on the interior hull.

    It appears to be too dark and thick for boat soup. Any suggestions from other owners of his boats ?

    Thanks,
