Jan Rozendaal so enjoyed restoring Mashnee with George Darling that he came back for more by buying MADDY SUE. As with MASHNEE, the work is being done in Darling’s Charlotte, Vermont, shop. Recent photos show her getting a new transom, some laminated sister frames, and floor timbers. A new engine to replace the old Chrysler gas one is also being planned. Douglas Brooks, a frequent correspondent to WoodenBoat, is documenting the restoration with photos. MADDY SUE was built as a working lobsterboat, but after that career ended she was used for summertime recreation as one of the very first of the genre now known as lobster yachts, leading in stages to the well-known Bunker & Ellis variety, then to the present-day Hinckley Picnic Boat.
