Having made contact with ‘the Partners’ in January 1975 Chester Buczynski purchased the drawing set for this Vertue in mid February and the drawings copies were supplied on the 5th of March along with answers to a dozen or so questions from a first time builder.
Built in the traditional way the hull was planked with readily available Northern White Cedar on White Oak frames. As was popular the drawings package included offsets for the raised sheer line and extended ocean cruising version of the deck works.
She stepped the two spreader slutter rig with the short boom and therefore no Boomkin.
