Our club has been in existence for over 63 years and is based in Mordialloc which is situated on the shores of Port Phillip Bay Melbourne Australia. Stew Sill's shop on Sodus Bay, Lake Ontario, looks more like a cottage on Cape Cod than a workshop.
Stew adds, "Although very few parts of the original boat were suitable to re-use, I still consider it a restoration rather than a replica.

Unlike the plywood-on-frame Flying Saucer, the Comet is a solid mahogany-planked boat, hull, sides, and deck. The stem, a few frame parts, and parts of the transom were re-used and the rest were replaced very precisely with the same materials Willis used, All of the castings and trim parts made by Willis were refurbished and re-used.
We think we are unique as most of our boats are clinker or carvel wooden boats which are between 30 to 90 years old.
