    Does anyone have information on a Seaforth 25, mfg by Precision in Texas, about 1980 or so?

    From a friend regarding my own '79 Seaforth...

    Below is a little more history about your Precision Seaforth 24 (some
    may call it a 22). She was first built in Florida where Precision Boat
    Works is still located today. She was designed by a Steve Seaton. I
    suspect that he based his design upon Sam Crocker's Stone Horse 23 from
    the 1930's except that it wasn't quite as double-ended as the Seaton's
    Seaforth 24. Sam Crocker was a New England boat designer and sailor. His
    son, Sturgis Crocker, built his father's designs in the Crocker boat
    yard in Manchester-By-The-Sea, MA which is located near the North Shore
    area of Boston

    Interestingly, Edey & Duff of Mattapoisett, MA (about 10 miles east of
    New Bedford on Buzzards Bay in southern MA across the Bay (west) from
    Cape Cod ) manufactured a 23-foot Stone Horse sailboat which was a
    fiberglass replica copy of the 1930's Sam Crocker design. It looks very
    similar to your Precision Seaforth 24 except I think that it has more
    porthole vents and the transom does not round to a point-like end. Edey
    & Duff made about 150 of them from 1971 to the early 1980's. They still
    are in business today building about 4 types of classic New England
    small sailing vessels in Mattapoisett, MA.
