George's original 13 foot skiff is up for sale...$14,999 takes it away!
George and I built that boat in 1978, or thereabouts. It was made of marine ply, with the panels stitched together with copper wire, then laminated inside and out, then all the interior compartments were made separately and installed. The entire project took only 3 days! (George had planned it out, in detail, well in advance.)
The first day we took it out was a rainy, southeast wind day at the SB harbor. It cut through the miserable bump like a hot knife going through butter. Made many surf trips in that boat, including jaunts out to the islands. It rode like a 20 footer, at least.
This boat became the basis for all of George's subsequent boat hull designs. I think Wardie Ward had it after George moved full time to Australia in the mid-90's. Not sure who is selling it now...
Greenough's original Baby Surfboard. 7'8'' long. Built c. 1962...ridden by Bob McTavish in 1968. The board originally had a glass on fin, but Bob installed a WAVE SET fin box and dropped a huge Stage 3 fin in it. Last seen with Alby Falzon in Carpinteria when they were filming Crystal Voyager in 1972.
attached my current favourite board. 7' x 23 x 3 1/8. Low rocker and
not too hully especially the last 1/3 which is pretty much flat. We're
close to most of the storms which make our waves here in the UK, so although we get a
lot of surf, we don't get much in the way of clean lines so a lot of
direction changes are in order and most of my personal boards [and
customers boards] are below 8' but thick and wide instead.
