Bill Dickerson made mahogony-planked boats out of his backyard on Church Creek near Cambridge, Maryland beginning in 1946 - everything from compact daysailers to a 58' schooner. He quickly became known as a builder of sturdy boats with clean lines at a reasonable cost. VIGNETTE is one of Dickerson's most popular boats, a 41' cutter rig.
