The original boat was named "Pops" and was a Hinckley Company Talaria designed by Spencer Lincoln, She came to Patton as a bare hull and deck unit along with assorted molded components. The owner, for whom Patten had previously finished off a Duffy 35’, asked the builder again to perform another high-quality build for him and his wife. As the Hinckley Company is not inclined to enter into this type of arrangement, it did so only due to special circumstances.
The name “Pops” is attributed to the original owner being an internationally respected Pops conductor. His desire was to have us build him another boat for cruising in Maine, Florida and the Bahama waters. Several important requirements that needed to be addressed were that the boat had to have two separate staterooms, a removable flybridge for trucking if need be, and twin engines. No other Talaria of this design has been built with twin engines. With help from the engineering department at the Hinckley Company, this boat became a reality. True Blue was later owned by the owner of a prominent marina and chandlery on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Its current owner has cruised extensively in the Mid Atlantic and New England.
