    Weetamoe was designed by Clinton Crane for Junius Morgan's syndicate and was also built in the Herreshoff yard on Rhode Island. Another sloop, she was registered at 123 tons gross & net (193 Thames), measured 126 feet in length with a 20 foot beam, and, like Yankee, sported 7,550 square feet of canvas under full sail.
