Further Comments

Rose is a 25 foot gaff-rigged packet sloop designed by Atkin & Co. of Darien, Conn.. She was built on Long Island Sound in 1959 for Mr. and Mrs. Robert H. Blair of Maplewood, New Jersey as ‘Pequeno’ ("Little One"). She was restored by Jim and Cheryl Spaulding of Downingtown, Pennsylvania and is based in Northeast, Maryland. Cheryl was the driving force for saving Rose in a four-year long saga by family and friends, and Jim detailed those efforts in articles in Nor'Easter and Chesapeake Bay Magazine, and a book ‘Rebuilding Rose: A story of an Atkin Packet Sloop’ published by MBI books in 2004.

The hull and decks are white cedar planks on white oak frames, and the keel is yellow pine. In 1998, the boat had some damage but the keel and keel bolts were OK, and most of the wood was usable. The hull was completely refastened with many new ribs, decks were redone, and the cabin was reworked along with the toe-rails, bumper rails, cockpit, deadwood, and stern. No expense was spared and many bronze fasteners and fittings were used throughout the restoration. The cabin-top was rebuilt and covered with long-lasting dynel, and a new interior was built to fit the boat's traditional appearance with more space and comfort. The motor was replaced with a silent electric drive system, to match the new electrical and plumbing systems. This was topped off with great detailing with classic cork on her spacious decks, bronze fittings, gorgeous new sails, lines, and halyards. After her re-launching, Rose sailed the Chesapeake as if it were her personal domain and took first place in the 2004 judging of the Classic Yacht Club of America for wood cabined sailboats.

Rose is living history based on the tradition of New England sailing vessels, as interpreted by the designer, John Atkins,. Since her re-launching in 2002, we have attended to her needs, and she has rewarded us with years of service and pleasure for our family and friends. However, our family has grown to eight grandchildren, and Rose needs to adopt someone younger with a smaller family to enjoy great classic sailing. Rose needs some love and renewal before you re-launch her, but at the low asking price of $6,950 you can do the finishing work with a new set of your own choice batteries for less than any true classic costs. If you are seriously interested in adopting Rose, please contact Jim or Cheryl Spaulding at 610-304-4010 or ccspaulding@verizon.net. As part of her identity, we will include a half dozen copies of autographed first editions of Rose’s book.
