It's a riding or steadying sail. A boat with that kind of windage would need something like that to prevent sailing around its mooring or to stay head-to-wind. It would also work well as a fuel saver going downwind.

Ah, Sounds like the "We Made It..." or some such. This beast is for sale, anyone with a hot $1500 , and a burning desire for a 20 hp trawler can own it this weekend.

Thanks Alan, I saw this on Craigslist and couldn't figure if it was fish or fowl

It looks like a Willard 30 with a bit of an add on to the rear of the cabin.

Hello Alan,

That rig looks quite a bit taller than a typical trawler steadying sail. In addfition to the uses you describe they are great for "steadying," as in when underway reducing the vessel from rolling by keeping just a little heal on.

It would be interesting to design a keel for this boat which keeps it above the waterline in say 15 knots of wind with full sails

The real challenge would be to size the boat and the cottage on top of it to survive a rollower and right after it But wait, the cottage would mean a lot of rightning moment when upside down. This must have been the point of the design, easy rightning

Does anyone know the whereabouts of this boat? Used to be in the San Francisco Bay. I used to own it, and built the aft cabin.

By the way, it had a long keel and was ballasted.
