Corsair II

In Festival Boats 2017

In 2011 “Corsair II” was visited by Frank Jacobs, the original owner’s grandnephew. He shared stories of adventures in the 1920’s. We learned that she and Jacobs had been commissioned by the federal government to do mapping work in Alaska. It brought dimension to a vintage photo we have of fur coated men with rifles and women on the bow. Another photo shows the hull scraped up rather badly. We learned that she had been sucked into a fish weir by a strong current, but escaped when the current abated to go on without the need of repairs.
