There could only be one lucky winner of the annual East End Classic Boat Society raffle. John Reinbold, a summer resident of Montauk, won the boat the group built at its Community Boat Shop in Amagansett.

The Goeller dinghy, the first sailboat built by the Classic Boat Society at its boat shop since the building's opening in the fall of 2008, was built by volunteer members. 

A drawing took place during the Holiday Open House at the Community Boat Shop on Dec. 7. Reinbold also won a new galvanized trailer for towing his boat.  

Plans are in the works for the 2014 boat, which will also be a sailboat. Known as the East End Sharpie, it is going to be modeled after the Cape Cod Oyster Sloop, a popular boat in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

The East End Classic Boat Society, a not-for-profit educational organization, is always looking for new members, from beginner to advanced skill level. Membership is $35 for an individual and $45 for a family.

The Community Boat Shop, located on Bluff Road behind the Marine Museum, is open year-round Wednesday and Saturday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
