    ANONA is a 28′ B.B. Crowninshield design, built in 1904 by the Ed Long Boatyard on the Genesee River near Rochester NY. She is a handsome gaff-rigged early daysailer/racer with a great history.  Correspondence with the Peabody Essex Museum has confirmed that she is Crowninshield Design #10. She has a well documented history on Lake Ontario’s Sodus Bay, and all letters of documentation, correspondence with the Peabody Museum, early photographs from the 1920’s through present, news and boating articles about ANONA will all be made available to the buyer.  She has fresh paint and varnish.  She is copper clench nailed fastened white cedar over white oak frames.  ANONA’s spars are of sitka spruce and are in very solid condition. She comes with an extensive collection of bronze, original hardware, as well as a complete set of quality Canadian wooden blocks that were purchased in 1980. She comes with two complete suits of sails (main sail and jib), both of which are in good usable condition.   Dimensions: LOA: 28′ Beam: 6′ 6″ Draft: 4′ 3″ Sail area:  400 sq. ft.   About the designer:   B.B. Crowninshield grew up surrounded by ships, sailboats and yacht racing. His family had a long history on the seas and were some of the most well known of Boston sailing society. His uncle, Jacob Crowninshield, was captain of the ship America and is credited with landing the first elephant ever to set foot on American soil. It was said they bought the elephant for four hundred fifty dollars and sold it for ten thousand.   Jacob Crowninshield was offered the post of Secretary of the Navy. Never taking office due to bad health he remained a congressman until his death in 1808. B.B. Crowninshield’s father, Benjamin W. Crowninshield became Secretary of the Navy in 1815.   Seawater was in his blood. Small wonder then, that after his brief stint in the west, on dry land selling real estate he was drawn back to the east and his beloved boats.   His boat designing career started out as a draftsman at John R. Purdon, a well known designer of knockabout class of sailboats. A year and one half later he set up his own design shop and started designing small racing daysailers. These small yachts would bring him fame as a designer so much so that he was asked to design the Americas’ cup contender INDEPENDENCE in 1901.
