Milton Thrasher: Star Class 3909 built by me in 1957
I built this boat from scratch in 1957 in western
red cedar and covered it with fiberglass before the boat was launched. Professional builders,
Etchells and Lippincott followed this example for several years before a way was found to
successfully mold the Star Class boats. This
boat was moderately successful and perhaps
limited because an outmoded keel from Star 475 was used instead of the more modern shape.
