March 3, 2024 The following is an exchange of emails between retired webmaster, Ron Breault and Nathan's Stapp. This resurrects #148 website data dating from 24 years ago!

I understand you have retired as web master of the Dolphin website. But inspit of this I thought you, or your successor would like to know that I own Yankee Dolphin hull #148. She is in need of restoration as she sits on a trailer in my back yard in medford oregon. I have had her for about 5 years. She had no name on her when I purchased her, and I have yet to name her as she is yet to be restored.

I love the idea of this boat, but I have never sailed. I hope and wish.

Wishing you all the best.
Nathan Stapp.

P.s. I can provide a picture of the hull plate and the boat if you would like.

Hi Nathan
Thanks for your email. I am 'retired' but have not yet drafted a willing replacement. Send me those pics and I'll sharpen my pencil and update #148's page.

Thank you for your response. This boat is a dream, that I hope I can hold on to long enough to develop the skills to make it a reality. She has no inboard, I have no idea if she ever did, you know so much more about this boats design than I can imagine. Honestly She was in better shape when I purchased her, and she has been neglected in my care. A snow storm has hit and my efforts to clean her up and assess her real condition have been temporarily haulted. There are surface cracks on the fiberglass of the cockpit floor the deck above an around the side walking areas. I hope that this is not a sign of more trouble than I am qualified to handle... I have some skills as a R.V. repair technician, but my real knowledge of boats and sailing is approximately zero.

Thank you for your time, and if there are any pages on your site you recommend I look at I would welcome a place to start.

Nathan Stapp

Reply to Nathan - cruising thru the Technical Section should provide good info



May 25, 2014. While waiting this Sunday morning for the morning dew to dry so I could mow the lawn your webmaster was roaming around the old Dolphin 24 website and came across this January 22, 2000 email posted on the Anne Bonny page. I had originally found it in the Jim Huxford Internet archives. (Jim was the first Dolphin 24 webmaster)

Subject: Dolphin for Sale?
Date: Thu, 20 Jan 2000 12:15:35 -0500
From: "Jerry Garner"
To: Jim Huxford

I looked at "Dolphin fleet mail", "Dolphin sagas and fleet list" and "Dolphins for sale/wanted".
1960 O'Day #20, "Darwin" for sale by Josh Lyons for $4200 - I didn't check
1971 Yankee Dolphin for sale by EFERREL for $8500 - I sent him an E-mail
1970 Yankee Dolphin "Wanderlust" by SDUBNOFF, sold per elsewhere in your site.
1969 Yankee Dolphin #148 by Ron Bohannon for $9995, sold per your site.
1968 Yankee Dolphin "Anne Bonne" by FraserYachts for$13.5k, sold - I called them.
#248 by Jerry Johnson - I sent him an E-mail.
I think that's it for the boats on your site. Did I miss any?

I realized that EFERREL and Yankee #148 did not have pages set up. Now they do. Someday we may find out more about them.
