Charles B. Rockwell  Phantom 

Owned by Stephen V. Millet, proprietor of the Wood And Water boat shop in Wickford, RI. The boat was originally built for Mr. Milletís grandfather, Charles B. Rockwell, and has been in the family ever since. Mr. Millet plans to pass her to his son. He recently rebuilt her, including new decks fore and aft, coamings, matched white oak from a single piece, covering boards and all trim in bird's eye maple. He also replaced the transom with one made out of black locust. Her tiller is hand carved out of bird's eye maple with a skull with black top hat at end for grip. It does not have the correct seats
