We purchased Mah Jong in 1996, and have
sailed extensively the East Coast of US and Caribbean to Grenada.
Cruising is a new beautiful anchorage to work on an old wooden boat
that you love. There have been no major rebuilds necessary, though
we have finally replaced our 1957 problematic Mercedes(no more parts
available) with a new Perkins M65 She was owned by Jim Mc Curdy, of
Mc Curdy and Rhodes yacht designers, for 30 yrs, and built
previously by the Grosvenor Clan and friends from National
Geographic Society. (Highlighted in December 1958 National
Geographic article " Posidon's Adventure") We are very interested in
all info related to our vessel, as we would like to fill in her
history. Mc Curdy, the commodore for many years of NYYC, sailed many
Bermuda races, and we have had recognition throughout all of our
voyages of her history. Mah Jong is all teak, copper riveted and
bronze strapped deck and hull. She has always enjoyed excellent care
and we strive to continue the tradition.
"Kuan Yin" - 1964 34' Cutter designed by Laurent
OWNERS - Elmo Mackay
AREA OF SAILING - Portland Maine
Kuan Yin is a one-off, custom designed by Laurent Giles for
Mr. and Mrs. Harry Harper in 1964. She is essentially a
longer version of the Hiscock's Wanderer. Giles described
her as the boat the Hiscocks couldn't afford.
I am the third owner. The original owner Mrs. Mary Harper is
86 years old and came sailing with me this summer.
The boat is in fine condition; a tribute to her designer and
builder. One of the finest wooden boats I have seen.
Currently I am bringing some cosmetic and mechanical/electrical
systems up to snuff.
I have the original drawings and correspondence between Giles, the
owner, and the builder's rep.
"Ping Ling" - 1956 30' Custom built
OWNERS - Eric Peikin
AREA OF SAILING - Maine
This wonderful sailboat was built
for one owner in 1956 and delivered in 1957 to its original owner,
who lived in Maine. I purchased it about eight months ago from a
gentleman who lives in NH. I believe he was the second owner.
Currently it is undergoing a complete restoration. I believe I was
meant to find this boat, and once completed she will accompany me
around the globe. I would like to personally thank the gentleman who
sold me this boat, as he let me begin my restoration under the
protection of his barn, always willing to lend me a tool, and take
the time to see my progress. The original owners family and the
second owner both have a front row seat at her christening once she
has been reborn.
