Re: [AtkinBoats] Sister ship to Sjovind
- I've forwarded your query to Mrs. Atkin, but the correspondence that might
contain an answer isn't stored in an easily searchable manner, so I wouldn't
hold out much hope for an answer from that direction. Do you have any
photos? They might help jog somebody here's memory, and of course we all
like to look at pictures of Atkin boats! <g> Is the boat in Port Townsend?
I'd like to take a look at it when I'm up there for the Wooden Boat Festival
if it is.
Did Tilikum sell the fiberglass Eric, Jr.? I ran across mention of a
fiberglass Eric, Jr. in the Newport newspaper the other day. A rare
fiberglass boat built in 1929!! <g>

Never board a ship without an onion, is sound doctrine.

- It looks like the closest match in the current catalog to Sjovind & Auwana
would be Fram or Gundred. You didn't give us much to go on, but a look in
the documentation database turned up dimensions of 34.3' length of tonnage
(rudder post to where the stem crosses the waterline, IIRC) and a beam of
10.5' for Sjovind and a length of 34' and beam of 10.6' for Auwana. Sjovind
was built by James E. Stevenson at San Jose in 1955, Awana was built at
Honolulu in 1961 by Ronald Linderman.
Do you know this boat:
