    I was just revisiting Annapolis MD, and having coffee down on the waterfront. I found these two vessels still docked there after quiet a few years. They harken back to older era of competitive racing on shallow water capable working vessels. What a marvelous vessel to own and daysail in our shallow waters up and down the east coast and the Bahamas.

    Sailed quite a few of these as a kid and lots of wet fun. The fastest designs tended to plow at times, once the rail was under they became something other than controllable, but fast and damn fun.
