Over the past few weeks additional information has been uncovered on a number of earlier postings:
Houseboat Doris – Although this is hardly a racing craft I have learned that it participated in a cruiser race in the Georgetown Regatta in 1912 and that after serving as a family craft she was on the Bonshaw – Charlottetown passenger and freight run in 1916. I have added this information to the Doris page.
Keppoch – I have located a more recent new post card of the scene on Keppoch Beach which I had not seen before. Some readers may recognize regular residents on the beach at East Keppoch. The image has been added to the Keppoch gallery. It is interesting to see the shocking extent of the erosion that has taken place on Lobster Point. In addition that page also has a comment/query on an image I identified as the Keppoch Beach Hotel. I have explained my reasoning as to the identification of that building which was moved from the original site.
Questions still remain regarding the identification of the Restless and the Roamer. One reader has stated that Restless had four portholes and the Roamer only sported three. If, so I have not been able to find any photos of the Restless. All the shots that I found show the boat or boats with three portholes only. The only differences between the pictured boats seem to be the location of the companionway and the position of the rudder. Does any one have a photo of one of these cruisers with four portholes?
