59673Re: Tennessee Build.
- Feb 3, 2009If you like "Gwen O The River", then you might try contacting PB&F
about the "Captain Rebecca Thatcher" design. It appeared in MAIB a
couple of years back, but I don't know if it's actually a finished
design. If it is, it would be much more like Gwen than Tennessee.
With respect to limited information about the Atkin design, I got the
sense that the current business is run by a widow or other relative
of one of the Atkins who may not have much additional information to
provide. Perhaps someone else on this forum can provide more details.
