Something a bit different for you know-it-alls, perhaps? The winner gets a brand new Camet Code Zip Performance Shirt

2 minutes late, and a camet shirt, short...or something like that. Fame is a very cool boat - glad that DC picked her up and did a nice job. She was on the "Save a Classic" page in Woodenboat magazine not that long ago.

Say what you will about Dennis, he's a class act in my book for saving this beauty. Way to go Dennis!

A boat with her own facebook page:

When did Dennis buy her, and how much work has been done? Thread on WB mentions that planking, frames & deck all needed completely renewing. Big job done quickly if so!

 

"Lots" mostly to make her stiff and fast - (Fast is Pretty)

 

what does PHRF give you for a 100 year old boat laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif

 

 

Looks like she got som more chopping after the photo was submitted - like some of the keel and © info mad.gif

Yes, this is The Schooner Fame which has recently been restored by Dennis Conner at Kohler Kraft Boatyard in San Diego! She arrived in San Diego on March 17 and has had a full restoration in just over 3 months! Her 100th birthday is this weekend and she is looking better than ever!

 

Please check out her Facebook Page titled "The Schooner Fame" for photos, updates, etc.
