Creekmore boats

I've got a 1962 Creekmore 36 and would like to make contact with other Creekmore owners. I'm in Gulfport, Ms and at one time there were 3 Creekmores in the harbor, A 30' and a 42'. They've all gone now and I've got the only one left.
Ray Creekmore built them in Miami and his son Lee now lives outside Mobile, Al.

Re: Creekmore boats

We own the first Creekmore 36 CB built by Ray Creekmore in 1957. See my post in Sept. 2011 describing it. Fantastic boat. Moored in Stonington, CT since 1971. Owned her since 1969. This boat has varnished mahogany cabin trunk and coamings, hatches. Changed from masthead to 7/8 rig with new mast in 1978. Still has original Daimler Benz diesel which runs like a top.
This is in response to post by Creekmore owner, October 2014

Re: Creekmore boats

That's terrific. A family friend bought this one new in 1962 and my wife and I got it in 1989. We covered most of the interior bulkheads in white formica, installed new, larger bronze port lights and larger hatches. We've added a diesel generator, a/c, chart plotter, roller furling and just got a new suit of North sails with mast slides and a lazy jack system, mainsail cover and bimini. Just installed a new 3 blade prop and am about to add a Maxwell windlass. Still have the Perkins diesel and it runs like a top.
We're on the Mississippi Gulf coast and have sailed up and down the West coast of Florida. We're about to retire and do some Bahama cruising. Send me an email address and I'll send you a picture. I'd love to see yours.

Thanks,

Frank

Re: Creekmore boats

Greetings Frank,
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 instruments, GPS 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.
My email: bmackinnon@sbcglobal.net
I'm not much of a photographer but I'll try to find a pic that I can send via email.
Bruce

Re: Creekmore boats

Just found this thread. I have a Creekmore 45 (really 46 by the paperwork) and love it. Have sailed from Maine to Venezuela. This one was finished out in the Bristol boatyard and looks like an Uber Bristol 32. Great boat. BeesKnees

Re: Creekmore boats

Thought you guys might like to see this. It is a pencil drawing that Ray Creekmore gave to my father. Underneath the drawing it says "Brilliant" Bermuda Start 1946, to Wm Masterson, Raymond Creekmore

Nice art.



And it is a nice connection to a boat designer.

Re: Creekmore boats

A few days ago I added a Creekmore 46 to the list of boats I have been finding for the following thread focused on Shallow Draft boats. The boat is currently for sale in Florida, and looks like a very nicely finished boat. See this link for many photos and notes about it. If you want to add some comments based on your own boat or experience on Creekmore boats, please do in that thread too. If you have a profile drawing of the hull shape, please add that too.

Re: Creekmore boats

I actually have a pen & ink drawing of a nude done by Ray. When he sold my boat to the original owner in 1962, he presented the drawing with it. When I bought the boat 15 years ago, I inherited the drawing.
I like to describe the Scorpio as bulletproof and a sweet sailing boat.

Frank
