1950 DYER DINK 10'. Owner says, "The 10 foot Class "D" Dyer Dink has the truly classic lines of the traditional sailing dinghy. It was developed as a utility dinghy suitable for one design racing and is in fact one of the premier "frostbit" dinghies. Constructed to the same exacting specifications as the yacht tenders, the 10 foot Dyer Dink is in a class by herself when it comes to quality and sailing ability. While this boat is used as a yacht tender, it has strong appeal as a day sailer in sheltered waters. Built by The Anchorage, Inc of 57 Miller Street, Warren, RI. The original purchase order (sold on 11/8/50 for $658.22), and all the bills of sale from owner to owner come with the boat."

Boat Construction: Guard rail -- Oak; clamp, transom reinforcement and seats - Mahogany; all woodwork painted white; 1 pair of oar locks; oarlock sockets; bronze hardware; color white, inside teak floors. Lapstrake construction, cedar on oak; fastened w/copper, Mahogany gunwhales, thwarts, partner, centerboard, rudder. All bronze hardware.

Sailing Equipment: Wood centerboard trunk with adjustable lever, Mahogany rudder, 19 foot mast with 9 foot boom, Wamsutta Egyptian cotton sails, 3 sails-one might be original sail, original rigging, Maine spruce spars, Cat rig, Hathaway, Reiser and Raymond sail, Sail area approx. 62 sq ft., Rigged entirely as it was on the date of first sale November 8, 1950.

"This boat is a classic, designed for frostbiting on Narragansett Bay. There are not many of these left, much less available on the West Coast." Asking: $4900. Contact Larry at Larry@MyClassicYachts.com or 877-532-0885 (toll free) or 510-814-0522. (CA)
