CHOPTANK

Todays WW story falls into the eye candy category and will spin the wheels of the workboat group.
The 62’ Choptank was brought to my attention by Australian woody – Andrew Christie, who spotted her on the WoodenBoat Forum.
Built in 1938 in Virginia, USA by O.W. Payne Palmer and named – Julian.
Later name changes were – Callis Brothers, then – Callis Brothers II.
She has just had a complete rebuild at the Eastern Shore of Maryland, where her name was changed to – Choptank.
Choptank is what they call a ‘Chesapeake Bay Buy-Boat’.
Make sure you check in tomorrow (Sunday) – great story coming u 😉

  1. Hope it’s got some serious hydraulic rams on that rudder!
    The blade area to leading edge area ratio is all to hell.
    Save going to the gym I guess.

  2. I think that’s “buy-boat”, not “buy-out”, and was probably used as such in her commercial days.
