Comment:
"#76p Idle Hour and #72p Camilla were added by CvdL to the list of vessels built from this model because the index to the 2004 Guide to the Collection lists them as having been built from model 603 and because a Forest and Stream, March 10, 1881, p. 117 article refers to #76p Idle Hour, #72p Camilla and #78p Juliet as 'triplets' with Juliet having been built from model 603."
