The heritage of the Snipe Class goes back a long way. to the days of wood plank boats made by skilled craftsmen and designers. Just a few of the famous names of this time are Clark Mills, Francis Seavy and Charlie Morgan, all from the Clearwater area. Many of you will recall or have heard of Francis sailing Honey, his beautiful wood plank Snipe. The Pinellas County Historical Society is now developing a replica of the Clark Mills boat workshop which will display the achievements of Clark Mills, Francis Seavy and Charlie Morgan. Honey will be on display. Finding a home for Honey has been a concern and objective for many long time Snipe sailors. Congratulations on your success and we hope many Snipe sailors will consider supporting this program.

The link to the web site with info about the program and facility is listed below. The ground breaking will be April 15, 2012.
