Kretzer 30 - Design 81

Here's a very early series built boat. The first was built for one L. Lee Stanton by Kretzer Boat Works of City Island, New York and launched in 1935. Five more were built in short order. This would be a perfectly good boat project to build today.

Here's the accommodations plan.

And here's a peek at the shape.

  1. I have one of these, in Freeport Maine, wonder if the others still exist?

      Don't know if you still check this site or not.
      Could you tell me what the cove stripe looks like on your boat?
      I have a wooden boat and no one seems to be able to identify her - most builders used a distinctive cove stripe and perhaps I can identify her if I can find the maker.
