Invader, built by Fenner & Hood in 1935. I redesigned her inside and out in 2005, added the aluminum tophouse, new bulwarks, and a lot more. She hit a deadhead last summer in the Fraser, partially sank and is being repaired at Commodore on Shelter Island. These events often turn up problems and a rotten stern is being replaced. She'll be good for a long time yet.
