I am DESPERATELY seeking the following. It seems that everyone has someone ELSE listed as a Nationals winner for the year he won.....that bothers me that there is no record of Granddad. But most of all, I want to track down the hull. BTW: The information located on vintagehydros I know about. That was posted by my Uncle.
The Miss Bee Bee E-4 was owned and raced by my Grandfather and my father, as well as a family friend from 1955 - 1963 in Hampton, Virginia.
He sold the boat to Tom Jebson of Newport News, Va who raced it as Miss Amy D, E-87 until 1972.
Family has talked with Tom who stated "Sold to a young guy taking her to Florida" in 1972.
1957 Nationals - Buffalo, NY
My Grandfather, Edgar Jones raced an E-service named Miss Bee Bee E-4 from 1955 to 1966 and won the nationals in Buffalo in 1957. She was a Vern Davis hull from Manteo, NC. She was sold to Arthur Jebson of Newport News in 1966 and
raced as the Amy D E-87 for a couple of years. From there she may have gone to an owner in North Carolina, and likely on to Morgan City, La., which was the last hotbed of E-service before the class disappeared.
