Notes

This boat, of Gulf Coast (US) origins, was raced as a one-design class into the 1990's??. Not to be confused with the Herreshoff FISH class (1916). Mr. Rathbone DeBuys, who designed the boats, also paid to have the first 6 built. In order to promote the class he rented them out at $5 a race.
