This is the boat I grew up on. We paid $100 for her. (She'd had a fire, been stripped and sunk... typical Goodlander vessel!) She was designed by Alden and built by Morse in 1924. She is design #213 and her sister ship was Yvonne. This picture was taken in her prime when she raced in the Bermuda race, etc. When we had her she was in tough shape. We moved off her when I was 12... and I was one pissed off kid until I purchased Corina three years later. This picture was recently given to me via a family member of Lyn Williams of Chicago (a previous owner, not the one we purchased her from), thanks to the diligent research efforts of George Zamiar. Various pictures of her appeared in Yachting, etc. I'd love to know what happened to her after we sold her in St. Petersburg in the early 1960s.
