FIDDLESTICKS!


FIDDLESTICKS! Custom Sea Lancer
Thompson of Cortland NY, 1962 Custom Sea Lancer
1963 Mercury 1000, 100 hp

Purchased from the original owner in 2006, “Fiddlesticks” is named after one of my father’s favorite expressions of exasperation. Though she was “refreshed” by the previous owner, and by no means carries her original interior configuration, all hull planking, structural wood, stern, windshield, and fittings are original. She plies the Chesapeake Bay, Bohemia and Elk Rivers (MD), the Christina and Delaware Rivers, and my favorite haunt, the Pawcatuck River, Pawcatuck, CT, running out to Watch Hill, RI.
