When it rains it pours, pores, and poors ......A new 12?
« on: March 16, 2010, 02:15:06 PM »
Well for a few weeks I've been working with David McKenney at Brewers on a 12 1/2 they have just listed. She was extensively rebuilt in the 1970's and have - like so many 12's - misplaced the builders plate durring that time. The owner thought he had the hull # though in the original paper work from the Bill of Sale - they purchased the boat in 1975 from a Dr. in Bristol RI....And so....Paperwork says She is hull # 863 - Originally named "Goblin" and now named "Petrel". When they bought her she was named "ID".

So we have a "new" 12 on our hands! Well done David!

She is currently for sale, so if anyone is looking....Seems to be in good shape - but David did say she has had several re-builds over the years and - again, like alot of 12's - done well but not with historic construction in mind, so she'd need work to put back in "stock" condition.

David is still digging - I think they have some more names (Like the Dr. from Bristol). Wonder if she sailed out of Bristol YC and if "ID" shows in any of their yearbooks?
