Build in 1929 by N.J. Blanchard Boat Company; Latitude has been a United States Documented Vessel since she was launched. Past records have indicated her original name may have been “Adagio”. Other names since may have consisted of “Martha E”, “Ananda” and now “Latitude”. Current owners carefully chose the name “LATITUDE” mainly because her beautiful lines remind them of latitudes on a navigational chart. Latitude has managed to maintain almost all of its original construction and cabin arrangement. In 2011, she was nearly 80 percent restored, however, she was closed up without proper ventilation for almost two years. This led to several areas of dry rot and major condensation issues throughout her interior. It was then her current owners purchased the vessel. Latitude was hauled out to under go a full restoration on her hull from the water line down which also included repairing multiple areas above the water line. From varnish to electrical, thru hulls and running gear, it suddenly became a mission to bring this vessel back to her prime. They succeeded in doing just that. Latitude still has the original round chine designed by N.J. Blanchard Boat Company but has been modified slightly to a semidisplacement “V-Hull”. Several frames and stringers have been “sistered” for support reasons but both original and new are all made from oak. The hull planking is Port Orford cedar with a mahogany transom. Many of the original bronze fasteners still keep her planking together. From bow to stern, Latitude boasts the finest boat building from the “Roaring 20s”.
