If you link to
woodiesrestorations.com under "current work" you
will find "83 Midnight Lace" and this has a running timeline
of the full restoration of this rarest of rare Cheoy Lee
projects. Each one of the 11 of this model that were built
was entirely hand-built and each one slightly different as
each was custom-made. All hardware is bronze and all
cabinetry is solid Teak. All joinery including the dovetail
joints on the drawers is hand-cut!
Of the thousands of designs created by Tom Fexas this was
his "first and finest" in his words; designed to reflect the
commuter yachts of the 1920's and utilizing the design
principles of the light, sleek and fast PT boats of WW II.
Here is what I believe is a complete list of all the OS50s
built by Cheoy Lee (and one hull built of steel in Holland)
as created (for the most part) by Neil Helleberg of the
Alden office, just before he closed it down and the plans
were all sent to M.I.T. The printed material is from N.H.,
while the penciled notes are mine. As you can see, there
were variations on the main theme (full keel, aft cockpit)
but there were more than 20 hulls built. Albert
