Cove Stripes - Boat Identifiers
~ from “Good Old Boat” magazine
Walking the dock has become a study in subtleties for the editors of Good Old Boat. Good old boats are everywhere, and we know 'em when we see 'em. But who was the manufacturer? Sometimes they still have a name decal or plate which is visible from the finger pier. But sometimes we wind up studying the cove stripe detail for clues. Our own C&C 30 and other C&Cs have a clearly identifiable stripe. We began to wonder if other manufacturers were similarly consistent with their cove patterns.
Impress your friends when you can tell them who manufactured the good old boats in the marina. (It's harder than you think. However, we're still trying to keep it all straight. That's why we posted these pages!)
