    Until the mid 90’s Linnet was owned by John McCurdy of Chester, Nova Scotia, and actively sailed from the Yacht club there. I crewed aboard Linnet from 1970-73.

    I bought Linnet in the mid 80’s, with the horn timber broken, cabin gutted, no engine, and losing her shape. I had Brownell truck her to Boothbay Harbor, Maine where David Nutt worked as money would allow to rebuild her. David replaced the horn timber, where once the old one was removed we found original scribe notations, bottom planking, refastened upper planking, cabin trunk, and deck with laminated plywood. I later put in a diesel engine forward with a hydraulic drive motor. I never got the interior in and had to sell her because of funds. She was a joy to sail as well as a financial anchor.
