Flounder, the wooden tender to Ayuthia, who takes her name from a city in Thailand, where she was built. These days she splits her time between — Hope Town in the Abacos where she is chartered in the winter, and Martha’s Vineyard where her owner Tom Grew charters her in the summers. Ayuthia is a gaff-rigged ketch dating to the 1930′s; she was built in what was called Siam (now Thailand) where her first owner had a teak plantation. As a result, says Jay Wilbur, the boat is ‘all teak, and the best teak’. Even the hull and keel.
