Based on the example set by the automobile industry, our boatbuilders must have assumed that the sailboats they were building would not last and that design trends would become dated and obsolete. Because fiberglass was so new at the time, they had no idea they were building the classics we would still value today.
Our boatbuilders left us a rich legacy. Those of us who sail a good old boat today owe them our greatest respect and gratitude.
Please come along with us on a trip down Memory Lane. You are your boat will find these true tales to be fascinating reading.
