Further Comments

This is a very unique boat built by the Palmer Boat in Fontana Wisconsin on Lake Geneva. This company went went of business in the early '40s. Buddy Melges Sr and Buddy Melges Jr. both were once employed there and Buddy Jr thinks he actually may have sailed this boat. There are very few of these little gems around and must be seen to appreciate. It was restored about 5 years ago, sailed 1/2 dozen times and then kept in storage. It does need a bit of TLC such as revarnishing.
