Ruthyeolyn - Lobster Boat

"In 1933 Henry [Hinckley] built his first boat [Ruthyeolyn], a 36-foot fisherman trimmed in Philipine mahogany. Her owner, Les Morrill, chartered to summer people for the summer, fished the boat himself for nine months, then cleaned her up and chartered for the next summer. The boat was so beautifully maintained that in 1973 when Les had to give up fishing, he offered to sell her back to the yard for $3,000." - "The Hinckley Story "by Benjamin B. Hinckley, Jr., published by Pilot Press, Dedham, Massachusetts, 1997, p. 21.
