Snipe #1 "Adelaide," built in 1931, was restored 60 years later in 1991, and is now in the collection of the Antique Boat Museum, located at Clayton, New York at the east end of Lake Ontario. The pictures below were taken by the staff of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (St. Michaels, Maryland) and reflect the boat as it appeared on display there in October 2005.
Note the wide cockpit which features seats on each side, the
daggerboard trunk and the skeg at the transom which were part
of the original design. Later, design provisions for the skeg
were eliminated, and a pivoting centerboard was allowed for about
20 years but later discontinued for modern Snipes.
