In a Class All Their Own: Unique and Historic Boats of New England by Tom Verde

Each boat has a tale to tell. In a Class All Their Own: Unique and Historic Boats of New England, author Tom Verde recounts the colorful stories of nearly forty classic, unique New England vessels. These include the fabled history of the cat boat; the first fiberglass sailing yacht; a NY ferry boat repurposed as a houseboat; the oldest working fishing boat in Stonington; racing rivalries in the Sound; the French love affair with American boat designs; and the Jazz Age era of luxury yachting, among others. In his presentation, Tom will discuss several boats featured in his book, including their classes and designers, as well as their relationships to the waters in which they sailed, raced, and cruised.
