"Built in 1968 at the DeDood Yard in Bremen, Germany, with mahogany planking and laminated oak frames, The Hawk was designed by Bill Tripp Jr. for a group of Cruising Club of America members, to be one of the first all-American entries in the international One-Ton Cup. The syndicate included yacht designer Henry Scheel, Daniel Bickford, Peter Comstock, William B. Dodge, Walter Flower, George F.B. Johnson, Donald P. Robinson, and William White. They called themselves The Ideal Partnership."I don’t think the Hawk is plank on frame. Iirc she is cold molded. I remember climbing around her back when Steve White had purchased her as a spec boat for when times got slow at BBY. At the time she was just a shell, and I think the hull skin was laminated. Just like crocodile, surprising to see her at Rockport! Although it’s possible she may have been sold as the owners’ new rocket is being finished up in Brooklin. Sweet little boat.
The article goes on to say White splined many (all?) of the planking and sheathed the hull in glass (?) but laminated to repair some of the ribs.
