I have been researching a sailboat my father owned at Duck Pond, Marblehead,Mass. during the late 1970's. It was a 38' wooden racing sloop designed by Carl Alberg after WWII. Perhaps you would consider adding this boat to your database. Attached are several photos of my father's boat, the Serenity (previously named the Watusi) and a drawing. I have the bill of sale. I do not know what became of her since 1980. Thanks for your efforts.

This Old Boat
by Don Casey
Subtitled "turn a rundown fiberglass boat into a
first-class yacht on a shoestring budget," this book is the best
introduction I know boat maintenance for the new or prospective owner
of a "modern classic" sailboat. Starting with guidelines
for selecting a boat, Casey proceeds to fiberglass repairs, cabin and
deckwork, spars and rigging, boat equipment, woodwork, electrical,
plumbing, refrigeration, painting, canvas work and sails. All of this
is described in clear, simple terms perfect for the inexperienced.
This is the book that taught me fiberglass work. But don't let it
fool you; this book is appropriate for experienced boatowners, too.
I still refer to it.
