Evergreen

#502, 36' x 24' x 7'4" x 5' sloop (1945)

The Evergreen design was one of the very narrow, agile, fast boats for one-design racing and overnighting. She is similar to and slightly larger than the Rhodes 33.  The main difference was that Rhodes 33 tended to be in Southern California, and the Evergreens in Northwest. 

Perseveren, below, is Gaelic for "If at first you don't succeed try, try again."  Hull #12 of the Evergreen class, built in 1947, rebuilt in the 1980s, has graced Lake Washington and the Pugent sound, winning both races and and beauty contests.
