2207New owners (and members)
- Dec 23, 2008Hi all -
My wife, Shannon, and I just recently purchased "Barnacle", an Atkin
Jonquil design 33' gaff ketch. She is currently in Port Townsend, WA
undergoing some minor bottom work (one wet plank and a couple of
cracked frames) in preparation for our bringing her to her new home up
here in Vancouver, BC.
We are trying to establish the boat's history. The previous owner told
us that she has been a local, Seattle-built boat. He also explained
that although her keel was laid in 1937, thereafter she had been
stored in a barn and slowly completed over the next 50 years, and not
launched until 1987 - which is apparent from her excellent condition
(and confirmed by our surveyor's observations).
We have just begun researching her, and have little else to go on at
this point. Are there any members of this group from the Port Townsend
or Seattle area who have heard of "Barnacle"?
Frank and Shannon
