Sailing LOON in the North Carolina Maritime Museum July 4th race around Carrot Island with Carla Byrnes of B&B Yachts as crew. LOON is a very versatile 15 foot Bay River Skiff designed by Graham Byrnes that sails, rows and motors well on weekends and can work crab pots during the week. While our boat, Loon sailed on the NC and SC Coast, Chesapeake Bay, Maine, Quebec, Ontario as well as on Lake Superior. Loon was sold to a couple who have sailed in the Great Salt Lake and have taken quite long camp cruises aboard her in the Sea Of Cortez. The BRS15 comes as near to being an all everything skiff as it is possible to have.

This was the first Bluejacket built outside the USA. As many builders do, John Williams made a few minor modifications such as the extended pilothouse top to suit their own desires.

Chesapeake sharpie is primarily a workboat but also fun for
leisure outings on the Bay.
