12:15 - 1:15 THE MERITS OF BUILDING WITH WOOD v. FIBERGLASS, with Richard Stanley, Master Boat Builder. Fiberglass hulls have proven to be hard on a fi sherman’s body. Fiberglass doesn’t absorb vibration; it just passes it through the hull. A wood hull absorbs vibration and gives an easier rolling motion that’s a more comfortable working platform. Combine a wooden hull with a fi berglass top for ease of maintenance. Richard has been building boats for most of his life.,

built to commercial boats. Williams also did not limit himself to

just the Stanley line. He fi nished off a 42 foot Ocean Cruising Yacht that was partially complete when they closed the doors in the mid-1980s. Another boat they fi nished was the 44 foot ketch CHERBINI, which came just as a hull, deck and engine. In the late 1980s, they fi nished out seven Christmas Cove 21s. John added, “It is very hard to build these boats, do a very nice job, and make any money.” This company works in three depart-

of the frames are being replaced, along with the forefoot, sternpost and some planks. The Blue Heron project is available for viewing during select times. Carpentry will be on hand working and will be happy to answer questions. The project will be convenient to check out if you are parking at our new yard for the show and taking the shuttle to the show ($5). Or, just stop by for a few minutes without paying to have a look – 100 West Commercial Street. Enter the large red building on the west side nearest the waterfront. Other boats inside for maintena nce may also be available for walk-arounds.

When the number of new boats to build decreased they focused on storage and repair and have gained a fi ne reputation doing this. Presently they are building a 38-foot

one-off cruiser, whose hull was designed by Doug Zurn of Marblehead. Her stations have been set up and they will have the hull fi nished this spring. When you are looking for a fi nely fi tted
