Both Bill and I cut our Moth Boat racing teeth with leaky old Ventnor Moths. We both graduated to new boats after our respective skills improved. And again, we both moved up to Cates Florida-design boats. I bought mine from George Szabo, a Cooper River Yacht Club racer who built a couple boats each winter, one for himself and the other for speculation. I bought Nr 2249 from George S. in 1962. Bill, on the other hand, teamed up with the Patterson family, down at Sea Isle City, and built his own boat. That boat is the subject of today's post.
