This was one of my father's first designs, sadly not built until after his death. Built by the Rockport ApprenticeShop, Maine

      That is a really elegant and beautiful boat and a wonderful photograph too!

      Jeff, if I had kept the postcard I scanned it from, instead of sending it to my brother for his collection of Dad's boats, I would know which photog to give the credit to. And credit is due...
      Dad drew that before he was 20, after reading Chapelle's "Speed under Sail" book. Talk about inspriation!

      I inherited his bad spelling, too - apparently.
      That would be "inspiration"

      It looks as graceful as a Friendship Sloop! Looks as if it came from the same family! Are the lines similar? CuleBreeze

      CuleBreeze, I would have to say the lines are similar, but not much more.

      All I can say is--it is simply beautiful! Are there DIY building plans available? If so could you give me the info as to how to get them at greg_lampton@yahoo.com. It would really be appricated, thanks.
