Further Comments

This one off design by John Alden attracts attention with her sweet shear and long overhangs designed for speed!."Clara" was sailed annually through summer of 2010 in good condition. Newer mast, engine rebuild, main and Genoa sails excellent condition. Roadworthy cradle/trailer with electric brakes, new tires and built in scaffolds. Summer of 2009 deck canvas repaired and painted, exterior Mahogany prepped and 3 coats varnish applied.Spring 2010 hull sides faired,sanded and 3 coats of paint. Wiring improved This is a very fast, sleek sailer. On Lake Erie for over 25 years. Must sell! Will trade for "Whitehall" or "Swamscot" style rowing sailboat !
