Midcoast Maine’s hardwater sailors were out in force on Saturday as the fleet gathered on Chickawaukie Lake in Rockland.
According to Buchholz: ” I built that boat; actually it’s a ‘restoration’. It’s a Meade built in 1965. It was a rotten mess when I got it, but the plank was nice, as was the hardware. I had two ribbon-striped mahogany planks left from a yacht planking job which I knew would be perfect for the fuselage side planks. It was those two pieces that actually inspired the project. All that’s left of the original boat is a piece of wood that had the builder’s name and date to which I added mine.”
