Revenge is an Alden 270(h)that was launched by Britt Bros. in 1926. Revenge was originally launched as "Sea Breeze" and has carried the name "Irma Ann" at some point in her life.
She was sailed and raced very hard through the 70's here on the west coast. Of her many races she was first schooner in the 1973 Master Mariners Regatta on San Francisco Bay.
Her original construction was fir on oak with full length planks. Unfortunately, the planking has suffered tremendously from three re-fastenings and damage from iron fasters. All planking is scheduled to be replaced.
Alas, 80 years of iron have taken their toll.
I have completed a new keel timber,new upper stem, new floor timbers,several new frames and several new planks thus far.
I will try to update photos and information as often as possible.
More to follow!
Coming up next....New Stern Post and Horn Timber. Completed Jan 15th 2007 photos coming soon.
