Save A Classic


A Roundup of 100 Classics

by Maynard Bray, Robin Jettinghoff, and Patricia Lown

“How many actually get new owners?”
“Do any of these classics really get saved?”
“We hear these questions often, so it’s time for a response.”

In WoodenBoat No. 228, we published this article about the 100 boats that have appeared in “Save a Classic” since the series started in issue 148. The boats are listed below with their names, types, and the issue in which they appeared.

We’ll be posting new information as it arrives, you can also post what you know of these boats, as well. This is a work in progress so check back often.
