William Atkin, a well known navel architect and boat builder of the 20s, 30's and 40s, working out of Long Island, NY, designed a sweet little yawl he called the Meridian. In 1938 the shipwright Joel Johnson of Connecticut was retained to build one named Destiny. Fast forward 80 years and the boat found its way to southern California where it was neglected and abandoned. This is where the author found it, and made the decision to bring it back to life. This blog is the story of the restoration.
