Ed Silvers grew up in Browns Mills, NJ in the 1940s and '50s. You can see him in the group photo of awards winners from Mirror Lake which I posted earlier. Ed currently lives in the British Virgin Islands and sent me the following old photos of him sailing his Ventnor Moth, Nr 987, named LENED, a contraction of his and his brother's and mother's first names. These photos are undated but according to the old Moth Class records, Ed raced this boat from 1948 through the 1951 racing season. After the 1951 racing season the boat was sold on to new owners who allowed LENED to winter unprotected on the beach. Ed assumes the boat is long gone but perhaps someone will see these pictures and connect the dots between them and an old Moth Boat sitting in a barn. Your diarist always hopes for a happy ending.
