More Information
The 110 was designed by C. Raymond Hunt of Cohasset, MA, in 1939. This one was built by the Hagerty Boat Co. in Cohasset in 1949 and has had a few owners. It has been mainly owned and sailed in Michigan although sailed it in the Atlantic for about ten years (ca. 1978-'88). It is fast and able in heavy weather although you want to keep the bow up when sailing off the wind in a heavy sea so it doesn't submarine. On the wind, it points unusually high; try to sail it on one side of the arc bottom for best performance and keep it moving.

Condition: This boat is in remarkably original classic condition with the exception that the plywood deck was covered with fiberglass laid in six layers of epoxy and painted it with light gray Petit topside paint; it has held up very well but needs repainting.

The paint scheme is original for this class of boat with a Petit bronze racing bottom.

Sails: There is a nylon spinnaker with blue top, #1 working jib (small), #2 jib (medium, cotton) and #3 jib (large Genoa) and mainsail--all good sails and dacron unless otherwise indicated. There is an older suit of dacron sails as well as a cotton Genoa and main--along with the aforementioned #2 jib probably the original 1949 suit of sails that came with the boat (as well as the all-white spinnaker). Included too are the three ash battens for the mainsail.

Owned since 1959! Very original boat with 110 fittings on it or available (as are the mahogany foot boards), wood mast & boom, Merriman 0-A winch on bridge deck, serviceable dacron sails plus the original cotton set, ash battens. Canoe paint job. Deck covered with fiberglass cloth set in epoxy some years ago; has stood up well. Needs some chine repair and other work. Outboard bracket, drawer (goes under deck aft of cockpit). A great boat due for some normal restoration--preferably as a classic rather than a racer. Yes, it's a one-design, but we always considered it a better heavy weather boat than some other 110s. Arranged so that it is easy to single hand sail. Together and sailed last summer; planning on this.

I decided to donate it to the Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council (Petoskey, MI) which will probably put it on Craig's List and use the money to further its efforts to protect the environment in northern Michigan. I suppose if anyone were seriously interested in the boat, they could contact the Council and make an offer (tel. 231 347-1181 or see its website which has email contacts).
