Header Photo: Three Vintage Classic Moths All in a Row

Photo taken on the docks at Brigantine Y.C. New Jersey.




Blogger George A. ID's the three Classic Moth designs in a comment which I've dragged over to the main post.
"The white boat is a Skip Etchells "Connecticut" design. Skip lived in Old Greenwich, CT at the time; the bright boat with blue side boards is a Dorr Willey-built Moth from Elizabeth City, NC; the yellow and black boat was built by Fran Abbott in Ocean City, NJ

Thanks George. How many Moths did Fran Abbott build?

George A said...

Fran built roughly two dozen Moths. I know of three survivors.

If anyone knows of an Etchels Connecticut "Rocky Point Moth" like the white one in the picture I'd be
more than interested.
