Alex sent me these four pictures of his newly launched Camden Class to post on the forum. Wow!
Look at that wake!
(His own "launch" posting: Camden Class Launched! )
What I wouldn't give to have somebody get a shot of MELINDA, like that first one, but with the Cascades or Olympics in the backround...
And this boat was built in what, about a year!?! Amazing...
You know, when I first found this forum, I was looking for ANYBODY who had any first hand experience of the three Crowninshield "knockabouts". Nothing. Now, including my own, I can think of at least three new builds, completed, and an original being bought by a forum member. Old B.B. and Mr. Burbank would be proud, I think....
True Love's original Dark Harbor 17 1/2:
Chip Flanagan's "modified" Dark Harbor 12 1/2 ("stretched" to 15' on the waterline and given a marconi rig at the owner's request):
And, of course, my own little Dark Harbor 12 1/2, MELINDA:
All three of the Crowninshield "Knockabouts", plus a new "variation", represented, quite recently, right here on the forum. How cool is that?
