is a fractional rigged sloop built in the late 50's by the Knutson yard,
which was located on the north shore of Long Island in New York. She came
to us in need of some substantial work on her bottom. During her stay
with us, we sistered a number of frames and added new frames where needed.
Her bottom was replanked, a number of floor timbers were replaced and
we rebuilt her mast step area. Finally, we installed a new fir sole. REBECCA's
owner did a fine job of making her look good with fresh paint and varnish
and she was launched for a new season of enjoyment on the water.
