Commodore Virgil Waite

Doryann II
Virgil Waite,1946-1952.

Maranee served as the flagship of the Vermilion Yacht Club in 1946 under the ownership of Commodore Virgil Waite, who named her Doryann II. He cruised her extensively with his family throughout the Great Lakes - down the Erie Canal, into the St. Lawrence Seaway and on several occasions up to Georgian Bay. In 1952, the Waites traded in the Doryann II for a 1950 42-foot Chris-Craft Double Cabin Flying Bridge Cruiser, appropriately named Doryann III.
