Josephine is a Monk design built by Blanchard in 1947 for Frank Hawkins, the flamboyant Buick dealer in Seattle at the time. We are the sixth owner, and have owned Josephine for 18 years. The boat has been completely restored, including rebuilt engines, new tanks wiring, plumbing, interior, decks, windows, etc. Approximately 12,000 hours have been invested in the reconstruction.
