Misnomers?


The state of Washington department of licencing graciously sent me a list of all wooden boats where the manufacturers name started with the letter B.
It was interesting to note that there were more mis-spellings of the name Burchcraft than correct ones.
We may therefore never know exactly how many of these boats there actually are.
I will have to recontact the Oregon State Marine Board as they only gave me a list of the boats with the correct spelling

Here is a list of the variations:
