“Sam V was built in 1964 by Rybovich and Sons in West Palm Beach, Florida as the FRISKY LADY.  Hull number 58 (out of 126 rybovich boats to date), she was the third to last of the classic “Dayboats,” without a bulkhead separating the cockpit from the deckhouse. From 1965 on all Rybovich boats had bulkheads and were 40′ to 50′ plus. This boat measures 37 feet, with a 12 foot beam and draws 3.5 feet. She has no keel which makes her particularly maneuverable when fishing. This design is truly the precursor upon which all modern sportfishermen in America are based.  She was specifically designed for sailfishing off of Florida, tuna fishing in the Bahamas and marlin/tuna fishing in the Northeast US.

Each Rybovich is custom built to meet the owners preferences. For example, the first owner had the cabin painted in a light washed finish, so all the trim below was made of ash instead of the traditional mahogany. Of note however, the fighting chair, the transom door and outriggers are just as original.  Originally outfitted with V-8 gas engines, she has had Cummins diesel engines for the last 30 years and cruises at 20 knots and goes 27 knots wide open.”

Built in Maryland: Chris-Craft, Owens, Cruis-Along, & Whirlwind

 The Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Club is underwriting this presentation by noted boating expert Jeffrey Beard. Mr. Beard’s private collection of boat catalogs, notes, and other memorabilia rivals those of most Museums within the world. His files and records are considered one of the largest, if not the largest such collections of original material in private hands.

The Chesapeake Bay Chapter – ACBS has underwritten the hour long Boating Event Talk by Jeff Beard that will be fully supported with slides, boat catalogs, and other resources from his personal files as one part of their dedication to furthering Boating Education / Knowledge on Boats and their role in the Chesapeake Bay. Mr. Beard has also agreed to extend his formal presentation time with an open question and answer session immediately afterwards, for those with queries about the boat brands of Maryland.  

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum has made available meeting space in their Steamboat Building on their 18 acre museum grounds and historic buildings.  

CBC-ACBS indicates that this seminar will be held at 2 PM on Saturday, June 19, 2010.

There is no cost to attend this seminar once you are on the museum property. The museum waives any property entrance fee to members of their Museum, but this St. Michaels non-profit organization does collect $13 from non-member adults to support their ongoing efforts. Ask before you pay about Senior, Children, and Military discounts. It’s also a good idea to inquire about Museum membership for you or your family. seabuddy certainly gets more than my donation back in the value after attending an event or two or visiting other Museums as already a member of the CBMM .
