Kevin McManus' Little Haste, Yankee #188, Marblehead, Brunswick, Maine - updated March 22, 2018  

June 28, 2014. Today we spoke with Kevin McManus, new owner of Yankee #188. Kevin knew all about Dolphins - he was the former owner of Marscot/O'Day #18 (now Mark Grady's Running Dog). He tried to buy her back but Mark wanted to keep her so instead Kevin bought Eric Varty's Canopache. Click here to go there

He has been working on #188 and she is almost ready to go in the water. We stand by for more info.

Stay Tuned

July 13, 2015. Yankee #188 has a new name, so today we gave her her own page.

Hi Ron:

A belated update, but as the attached photo shows, Little Haste (#188) ex-Canopache, is back in the water. Still very much a work in progress, but launched (with lots of help from friends) in Marblehead last week. Currently a true sailboat, I've pulled the frozen Atomic 4 and am looking at various outboard options (you can see she's bow-heavy now without an engine). Lots and lots of work still left, but I'm looking forward to first sail!


ps I should hasten to add that my wife Sheila has been very helpful in getting Little Haste launched!



July 25, 2017. Kevin and Little Haste get credit for an update - Kevin stopped by Marionette's slip in Camden, there for the Dolphin 24 New England Championships http://dolphin24.org/ccc2017.html


March 22, 2018 - Kevin and your webmaster exchanged emails - Kevin's update is below (minor edits) - AND, he thru in a teaser - maybe Little Haste will make it to the Camden Classic Cup/Dolphin 24 NE Championships in Camden, Maine, July 26-28!! Here's his email (minor edits)

Hi Ron:

Long time since contact to be sure. Sorry for the delay. As it happens, I've been talking with my brother-in-law, (who is an ex BU collegiate sailor with loads of experience and a new found interest in Dolphins), about Little Haste upgrades and a potential trip to Camden (Webmaster note YES!!!)

I have some priority fixes to address, most notably a stern outboard well (pulled the old Atomic 4 for good), and re-installation of the centerboard, but might be able to pull these off this spring?....... We’ve relocated to Brunswick, Maine to escape the Boston/Route 128 rat race but are still working - hoping to retire to spend more time playing with old boats.

It looks as though you’ve got quite a crew roster… congrats to your daughter! (Webmaster note - Son Mike and I are the planned Marionette crew in Camden this summer - but check this out about daughter Nicole)

I’ll be trolling the website for tips on both projects and anxiously awaiting the end of this snowy winter, but will let you know how things progress.

Thanks for your work on the website, it is a great source of info about these iconic boats.
