    I am looking for full keel, heavier displacement aluminum sailboat designs that are under 30'. Does anybody here know of anything like that? The only one I have seen is Tom Macnaughton's Silver Penny, which is a design I am very fond of. I do want to find other possibilities as comparisons.

    Douglass Pollard built Bolger's "Wolftrap", 30'-0" x 10'-11" x appro. 2'-6" draft. Full keel. Cruised extensively world wide for many years w his wife. Had only excellent remarks re: using aluminum rather than steel, the sailing speed and sailing qualities.

    Wolftrap was written about in "30 Boats" 20210426_143449.jpg 20210426_143433.jpg
    Very safe boat which is partly due to the low hdrm but a deck house could b added which would slightly change its wind age profile.
    Love the low draft and aluminum build
