LISEC’s SS SLOOP
A number of years ago, Chic Voohris, a LISEC founding member and director emeritus, gave LISEC an SS sloop. The boat remained out on a rack in the boat house yard until January 2011, when LISEC Director Phil Schiavone offered to fund the restoration.
The boat was moved into the boat shop and the assessment of what was needed to restore her for sailing was done. All ribs, deck frames, transom and stem needed to be replaced.
Our restored SS Sloop was auctioned off and the winning bid was from a gentleman in the Westhampton area where these boats originated. Money from the sale will go towards a furnace in the boat shop to allow for more work during the winter months.
