I read Greg Rossel's article about the Brown shipyard with a good deal of interest.It was a thorough description of a subject that was clearly significant to him.What I found intriguing was the photograph of a group of luminaries in the story.One of which was listed as William H Brown which was an interesting coincidence as I have nearly completed a half model of the 1851 America and one of the sources I referred to was a Charles Mower lines drawing,which credited the design to George Steers and the building to William H Brown.It may have been an earlier generation of the same family but I suspect a connection.Can anybody shed any light?
