Notes

The original STAR class boats of 1911 evolved from another smaller boat called the BUG, built in 1906. The the first batch of 22 were built in the winter of 1910-1911 by Isaac Smith at Port Washington NY. Stars continued with the gaff rig until a short Marconi rig became an option in 1920. Measurements are from the original Gardner plans dated Nov. 1910 Francis Sweisguth worked for the firm of William Gardner at this time.
