I used to go out on this boat
by: Phyllis Orrick

This used to belong to Robb and Betty Tyler, and it is named after her.

I have fond memories of outings on the Chesapeake Bay when it was Robb's newest boat.

It was delivered in the summer of '59. We rode it up the Hudson in 1960 and decorated it with campaign balloons for Gore Vidal's losing congressional bid in 1960.

Feel free to contact me via gmail.

I'm poberkeley.

I would like to buy one for my family

I used to live aboard one of these beautiful craft.

It had some dry rot inside the cabin windows.

The twin Chrysler Crown 125s could pull an oil tanker.

She proved more than I had the means for back then.

But, I will always love that boat.
