|Boat: Bolero, a 1967 Shields Class One Design (Hull #9; Built by Cape Cod Shipbuilding Co.)|
Shipment to Washington State: Departed on September 19, 2008; Launched on September 27, 2008 (first launch photo to the right)
Scope of Project: Convert this
open day racer into a "modern" knockabout daysailer with weekending
by starting with a design of known pedigree and modifying the deck and interior
to include a small cuddy cabin with basic accommodations--all while retaining the
sailing characteristics of the Shields with minimal additional weight, and while
maintaining--and even improving upon--the aesthetic qualities of this attractive hull
