Twists, turns, and serendipity tell the story of these BB 30s. Young Miss appeared in the classified section of WoodenBoat magazine in 2004. She lived in Florida and still sailed. Quakeress II, having been christened Catspaw later in the century, spent time on the hard in Norwalk, Connecticut, then in Brunswick, Maine, and eventually found caring shelter at the Yacht Restoration School in Newport, Rhode Island. With the help of Maynard Bray, technical editor of WoodenBoat, an American yachtsman living abroad, and his partner, bought these two yachts for their own use and also bought Evelyn (christened Lady M after her restoration), which they'd found in Oxford, Maryland. The partners planned only to restore two of these yachts, so Bray wrote about Evelyn in the magazine's "Save a Classic" column. A third yachtsman, who was willing to restore the yacht to the exacting standards set by the partners, bought her. A fourth BB 30, Anita, also bought by the original partners, awaits a buyer and restoration at French & Webb.
