Sounds like you're happy with your Creekmore. Clearly we are too since we have had her for 45 years! They are really great sailing boats, extremely strongly built. Our systems are still basic, with just modern depth
, speed, TacTic wind
and an anchor
roller and windlass
added. As I mentioned, the change to a 7/8 rig from masthead was a good change. Ray had originally built a fiberglass
mast and boom for this boat. They were heavy and flexible to the point of being scary in a breeze. She was, though, sailed in the Bahamas
and north down the Maine
coast with that rig, but I was quite nervous in a near gale off the Maine
coast one night in 1971. We've just cruised New England
since then but she's so easy to sail we can day sail often and cruise
two weeks at a time.
I'm not much of a photographer but I'll try to find a pic that I can send via email.
