We bought Ted Seymour's Morning Star early this past September. Ted did an incredible job designing and finishing her. We are beyond pleased. Spent the remainder of this season, sailing locally, getting used to her. She has been hauled for the winter in Wickford. Will do some minor work on her over the winter and look forward to broadening our cruising range next spring. Maiden voyage to Bermuda in 4.5 days Perkins 4-108.

|Stuart & Anne Thomson||Exeter,
in 1984 in Rhode Island. We've owned her for 3 years and spent the vast
majority of that time completing a major refit; new engine (Perkins 4326),
new standing rigging, complete rewire, new sails, new tanks, plumbing,
layout etc, etc. We've also spent a lot of time getting her ready for long
distance cruising. Its been exhausting but we're now ready for some extended
cruising with our two children (Callum 6 and Bevan 3) starting this summer
and hopefully heading over to your side of the Atlantic.
It's such a relief to have confirmed that there are such things as Creekmore boats as here in the U.K. I could not find anyone to verify what I was told after I bought her (its a long story but basically the person I bought the boat off did not know what it was that he was selling!).
Now living aboard.
|For Sale||Ft. Lauderdale, FL||Cutter Sloop super deal for the long range cruiser, this is a semi project, Perkins 4-99 diesel, plenty of sail inventory, good rig, strong survey, super deal for quick sale, call for details & make offer, please call www.federalmarine.net|
|Lucifer and Rachel Keener||San Diego, CA||Grandfather owned it for 20+ years, He bought it from a fella that
raced it. Excellent boat, 2" thick hull makes lttle accidents manageable.
We are reworking now. Great addition by grandfather, Full enclosure of
cockpit with a teak dog house. Plan on sailing to yander in a few years,
and this boat will definitely be great.
She is best described as everything we never knew we always wanted! As soon as we get a picture we will send it. We don't have that capability right now. We are two live aboards and a golden retriever and a baby on the way. I love the boat and glad we have a boat that isn't a a cookie cutter model. My dream is to circumnavigate with the family. Hopefully sooner than later.

bought it in 1966 for our trip around the world from 1968-1970. Changed
the interior somewhat to accommodate 6 (Mom, Dad and us 4 children) and
to have a lot more storage, but other than that we've left it pretty much
alone. Been sailing it constantly (other than a 6-8 year hiatus)
since then mostly in the Chesapeake. Bermuda a couple times, the
Northeast, Bahamas a couple times and a couple years in Key West.
As I said, real heavy. Solid hand-laid (of course) glass with 24
solid 1" SS stringers bars running fore/aft. New Perkins 4-108 about
8 years ago. 3 rebuilds were enough.
It is a yawl rig with a rather big rounded bow. EVERYWHERE we go someone asks us if it's ferro-cement I guess because of the round bow. And molded dolphins on either side. Small doghouse that stops 5 or so feet from the main mast. After cabin accessible only from the outside. Center cockpit.

|City Island, NY
and Key West
|Since purchase, I sailed the boat to City Island, NY and worked
on her all summer. I have replaced four hatches in the deck, repaired considerable
delimitation where rigging meets the deck, replaced old nasty kerosene
stove w/ shiny new Broadwater propane. Also installed new 1/3 hrsp refrigeration
unit done by Safe Harbor Diesel in Key West (very happy w/ work and price),
ran beefier lifelines and larger backing plates on lifeline stansions,
installed external h20 outlet, new headliner, and had emergency tiller
fabricated. Those are the big ones plus a couple hundred little projects.
You know how it is.
Presently, the boat is in Charleston, SC. I am waiting for help to finish the journey south to Key West. I would like to spend New Years in Cuba. I would love to talk to other Creekmore owners especially concerning engines and possible repowering cost issues etc.

|John Micocci||St. Petersburg, FL|| I built Noelani in Medley, FL, '78 to '82 and sailed for several
years to Maine, Bermuda, Bahamas and Carib. Moved to St. Pete and let boat
go downhill. I remarried in '97 and my wife, Christine liked the boat so
we did massive renovation, including adding 2 feet on stern. Just recently
finished, we sailed to Cuba for shakedown and won Morro Castle Race off
Havana in non-spinnaker. Next destination is unknown, maybe Bahamas or
U.S. East Coast. I worked on a number of the 27's, 34's, and 40's from
'78 to '83. Helped deliver a 27 to Long Island. It's good to see these
great designs being appreciated by new owners.

|Virginia Beach, VA||I've had her on the hard since the end of August. Am in
the process of giving her a peel, then sand (much), fair, more sand,
prime, epoxy, sand, epoxy, and anti-fouling, using the Devoe system.
DESTINY made it back afloat December 20, 1999, after her extensive hull and systems work. Current project is resolving the mast partner and deck leak problem as well as reworking the headstay/furler attachment and then retuning the rig.
I'll continue to keep you updated on her progress. I am very interested in finding out the current and past owners of these boats to share lessons learned and enjoy some "class" association.
