Hull number 509038
Built in 60s
|Richard Simpson||Camachee Yacht Yard, St Augustine, Florida, 32095||There was no name and little history, but she appears to have been very little used, perhaps never finished, or has been stripped of almost everything and rebuilt. The hull and topsides are in excellent condition, I have just replaced all the underwater bronze, including rudder shoe and post. The rig is in fair shape though the sails will need attention. Internally she is very clean but not fully finished. I can't wait to get her back in the water and sailing. Looks and feels like a fun boat.|

Pronounced more like ashy-my-ky-anne. It
means "As it happens' in Cree indian. Which is also our outlook on life. (1974)
|Ashley & Brenda Russell||At the moment we are living in a Marina in Townsville, Queensland in Australia & both working to rebuild the kitty.||
I've changed the engine twice, changed from a sloop to a cutter, cut back the boom to a better size added an extra fuel tank.
And we've lived, worked & cruised doing 2 1/2 circumnavigations. One thing we do like about our yacht is the interior which is all mahogany & Brenda is a great varnisher so it always looks perfect.
Just a note to & a photo of our newly finished project, the table as you can see in the photo, is now a great addition & a good talking point. It's an Australian Aboriginal dot painting of 2
platypus's. embedded in epoxy & sprayed with clear urethane paint.

|Built and Currently owned by Ray Taylor
|Lived aboard and sailed 25-30 thousand miles. Currently in Bay St. Louis, MS||
I built a 34' creekmore the 3rd hull out of the original cold molded wood
mold. Ray Creekmore helped me quite a bit. I sailed with him and his wife through the Bahamas on the last cruise in his 48' sloop built out of the 45' mold. The 34' I built was of course Lee's design and it took 5 years to build and was sailed for the first time in 1979. I lived on it for 9 years and cruised the Bahamas and the Antillies for 5 years. I have restored 95% of the boat to new like condition. New engine etc.
We actually took 5th place in Columbus Day regatta ahead of Whale II in 6th place in about 1982. They only gave trophies to 5th place. Sandy was a good sport.
The boat is in ready to go mode very little preparation needed.
I sailed her two weeks ago toe rail on the water close hauled and moving off the wind at about 9 knots in a fresh 20 knot breeze.
Some Stats on the Boat:
From Puerto Platt, Dominican Republic to San Juan, Puerto Rico 280 MI in 36 hours
Average speed of 12 knots from the Windward Passage to Montego Bay, Jamaica reaching with spinnaker.
Lots of memories. I started building this boat when I was 22. I'll be 50 July 4th this year. the boat is tender and a young mans challenge.
Cutter Rigged Sloop, 5 Sails, Full Keel, New 3 cyl. Volvo Diesel (50hrs) New Stereo with 10 CD Changer, AutoPilot, Nav. station, This yacht is built for "Blue Water " Cruising. Boat hull has never given him any trouble or signs of stress even though he has been in some major storms over the years.

|Patricia Dietrich||Rickenbacker Marina, Miami||Junk Rigged, two masts.
The original owner now lives in Amsterdam. He and Ray Creekmore were friends living in Coconut Grove when they built the boat.
She is a junk rig, the Hassler/McLeod design, specifically made for single-handing. The dog box gives the only relief to the flush deck. She has a Volvo MD2B diesel, an aft cabin, foreward V berth, and the head is just aft the V berth. Her original name of Lorcha was after the 19th century junk rig fleet of Brittish ships that plied Chinese waters. I have re-named her Pallas Athena, after the Greek goddess in her form personifying physical bravery coupled with wisdom. I've done a lot of work
on her in the last year and now live aboard at Rickenbacker. I hope to have pictures of her soon

|"Original 30 with plumb bow and rakish stern. Two boats where pulled
from the male plug. The other boat sat out at the Medley shop for sometime
until it was bought by John Richardson" - John Teloh
"I vaguely remember a 30' called "Stubby" moored out in front of the Coconut Grove Sailing Club. If I remember right, it was very prominent in a early 70's Miami-Nassau race." -G. colligan
|Jim Edwards||Dinner Key Anchorage||Bow is not as plumb as Champion. Transom hung rudder. 1 cyl Yanmar.

|Iris||John Duffy||Coconut Grove Sailing Club||Not the same hull as Champion/Mad Rabbit. Very broad square stern. Perhaps the same as Love Machine.|
|Michael Posey||She is presently on the Chesapeake||Thanks for the information. It was great to see other boats designed
by the Creekmores. I own Nina, a Creekmore 30 that was built in '68
and raced between Miami and Nassua. But she doesn't have a plumb bow
and reverse transom. She has beautiful traditional lines. In 1993
she placed 1st in her class and 2nd in the fleet in the Gulfport to Pensacola
Love the site, will visit again.

|Michael Kessler||I am now living in San Francisco and the boat is berthed in Sausalito.||Built in Miami in 1966 by Ray Creekmore. I have met both Ray and Lee back in the 1980's (sometime) when I was living in Miami. I bought the boat in 1979 and have had it since.|

Previously owned by Sam Poole of Miami.
|South Florida||I am co-owner of a Creekmore 27, "Tequesta" currently sailing the
waters of Biscayne Bay. I write to thank you for your great page on the designer;
it is difficult to find information on these fine boats. Ours can be found
sailing mostly in the evenings and Saturday afternoons, seldom in races
(We need to spend some money and time on her to make her raceworthy). She
has a daggerboard and a masthead spinnaker which makes her very fast but
very sensitive off the wind (Don't sail too close to windward!). I would love
to meet and sail with people who know the boat and get some ideas about tuning,
crew positioning, leads, maybe even polars if they exist! The registration
says it was built by Windsong, I know nothing about them or whether it was
father or son who designed her. Again, thanks and congratulations on your
page! Hugo Benitez.
PHRF 165. Sail # 3
formerly Molly Malone
I just purchased a 1982 Creekmore 27'. Afraid I don't have a
whole lot of information for you
at this time .... too busy getting ready to move & liveaboard her! I know this, in 1999 she was
known as "Molly Malone" and put on the hard in Glades boatyard, some repairs were made & she was sold to a fellow named Fritz from Switzerland. She was put back in the water in 2000, and renamed "Eva Luna" .. I just bought her for a song (in a sorry state) and plan to restore her to the condition she should be in. Have photos .. but in a flux right now, some stuff here, some stuff already aboard. I know the beam to be 12'2", draft at 4'6" .. would love to know the LWL, displacement & height of mast above the water .. would also be nice to know where she was built ... if you have more information than I do, would be much appreciated ... if not .. will provide what I can, when I can, by the way .. a fin on the rudder? Never seen this before! Seems to work well, steers better than any sailboat I have ever been on. Has a broken 8 Horse Renault .. will be removing it to use my new 8 Horse Nissan O/B .. know anybody looking for used parts?

|Greg Mill||Pamlico Sailing Club in eastern NC||I have the original brochure, which credits Lee for the design, and
gives Paul Lindenberg the credit as the builder. I have spoken to both Lee
Creekmore and Paul Lindenberg about these boats. We race our boat exclusively
PHRF, there continues to be relative success in MORC races by other Lindenberg
Esso-Bee with what appears to be another Lindenberg 26 in the background
|?||Dick Wisti||Minnesota||Won the MORC nationals a couple of years ago in an L-26, so you know the boat is capable of a good turn of speed.|

with a chain saw. She had a B&R mast, double spreaders, and a beautiful
sail inventory made by Miami's own Charlie Fowler (He's now the Haarstick
Loft in Miami) I sailed on her in the MORC Nationals in 1977 in Annapolis
with Charlie, Sid Doren and Bob Barnett. Charlie knows a lot about Lee's
boats. I met his dad, Ray, years ago out in their "shop" in Hialeah. Ray was
a very interesting character having built his first boat in Mamaroneck, NY
with Bob Derecktor. -G. Colligan
