 In 1956, Rhodes shrunk a Rhodes 29' lwl sloop (Altair)  to 28' lwl. to create the Bounty II.  She was 40'10" loa, with a 10'3"beam and 5'9" draft.   This was one of the first large stock auxiliary sailboats built in fiberglass.   She had a raised doghouse with large windows, a 7/8 sloop rig, and a fiberglass mast.  A yawl version was available.  Her engine was under the galley floorboards, and she had iron ballast.

Bounty II  was built by the Coleman Boat and Plastics Company (later Aeromarine Plastics Corporation) of Sausalito, CA.   (The Coleman company had built the Bounty in the 1940s, Bounty II was an obvious name for this new project.)  The boat was introduced in 1956 and exhibited in January 1957 at the New York Boat Show.

About a dozen hulls were finished by Palmer Johnson (in Wisconsin).  These boats are called "Palmer Johnson Bounties."  Given the standards and experience of Palmer Johnson, these versions of the Bounty were finished to a very high standard, beyond the normal standard of a regular fiberglass boat builder.  Palmer Johnson may have had their own hull numbers, so it is possible that Coleman boats and Palmer Johnson boats could bear the same hull number.  Palmer Johnson made some of the specialized hardware for the boat, and may be able to supply hardware now for restoration work. 

The Grumman company bought out Coleman in the early 1960s and in 1962 transferred the molds to the Pearson Company in Rhode Island, which Grumman had also bought. 

Cormorant is a fine example of these wonderful boats. She has been well cared for and is currently in the water for the season. Come have a look!
