Morning Song History

Morning Song was meticulously handcrafted by architect Kenneth O. Minor, following plans purchased from Lyle C. Hess. Almost thirty years of love and care went into building every aspect of this boat, and she was launched into the Santa Barbara Marina on March 12, 2016.

She's looking for a new home

The sistership to Lin and Larry Pardey's TALEISIN is not only a beautiful, seaworthy vessel but a one-of-a-kind, hand-built, all wood piece of art.  She's been painstakingly cared for and we're looking for a home that will continue the detailed maintenance that she's grown accustomed to.


Kenneth O. Minor

Ken Minor was an architect for over 40 years when he changed careers to become a boat wright.  With a masterful eye for detail, Ken hand-lofted this 29'6" Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter.
