Notes

aka FISHERS ISLAND 24
Sailed at Fishers Island for 10 years, after which they were sold as a fleet to Gibson Island YC on Chesapeake Bay.
Originally gaff rigged sloops. Re-rigged as Marconi/Bermudian sloops in 1929.
At least 14 were said to have survived into the 21st century and raced as a fleet at Groton Long Point YC in Connecticut. (no contact information has been discovered.)
Original plans are part of the Charles D. Mower Collection at the Mystic Seaport Museum.

(Eds. note: An article in 'Classic Boat' magazine, Dec. 2014 states that only 16 of these yachts were built, all in 1923, and that 14 survive. www.classicboat.co.uk)
Dimensions from various sources differ widely.
