    We are searching for information relating to a 48' ketch that Ed Monk designed. Our was built in 1973 by Skookum works of Port Townsend WA. We have some large draftings from Monk's desk. Anecdotes, design philosophy, testing records, previous owners, names of boats of this design... anything that you can contribute will be appreciated.

    In going through the boatdesign.net's archives I found a posting by "Yacht Designer" : "The term "Offshore Cruisers" was used more than 35 years ago by Edwin Monk Senior to describe cruising yachts that incorporated heavy, full-displacement hullform, rugged construction and extended range, enabling cruises of 1000 miles or more on an open coastline with few opportunities for shelter." This describes our boat. We just hunger to learn more. Thank you, Yacht Designer, for those words.
