A collaboration among designer Bob Perry, owner Kim Bottles and the Northwest School of Wooden Boat Building results in a one-of-kind 62-foot double-ender
Francis Lee was named in honor of a father’s boating lineage, but everyone knows her as Sliver. To the dockside crowd of sailors who reveled in the champagne-soaked launching, Sliver was celebrated as a hometown wonder designed and built in the Pacific Northwest. The wood composite 62-foot double-ender was designed by Bob Perry and built at Northwest School of Wooden Boat Building.
