Olin Stephens on the Loft Floor

Here's a fairly rare shot of Olin on the loft floor (albeit a fuzzy image). This looks like the loft floor at Derecktor Shipyard in Mamaroneck.


  1. In this photo....
    Nils Halvorsen, Paul Coble, and Olin at the
    Minneford Yacht Yard, probably working on either Constellation or Intrepid's lines.
    Paul Coble as I understood at the time was a
    project manager, Nils Halvorsen was called out of retirement after about 50 years with Nevins, and of course Olin. Nils eye sight was beginning to fail but he was always right on the mark. Between the three you may not find a more talented group photographed together.

  2. External Solid wall insulation involves adding a layer of insulating material to the outside walls of a building and coating this with a protective render or cladding. There are lots of options to create the finish that you want and these may add value to your home. It’s a specialist job that requires approved installers working to a specific tried and tested system. There’s a list of these on p19. External solid Attic board may be particularly suitable if you wish to avoid internal disruption or are doing other work to the exterior of your property, such as re-rendering.
