    What design is this?

    What boat on cover of Cruising World?

    All semi custom. What makes Dauntless unique is the small forward off center hatch.

    Hard to gain any perspective here but likely a base for the original windlass as shown. Recall British boats of that era having flush "skylights" so maybe the case. Not sure when she crossed the Atlantic but now sailing in PNW

    Bull, that is a beauty --thanks for posting. Believe Giles designed the "slot" for partners for the reason given by Ismael. See design penned in 1940 and likely changed to a more conventional partners in the 20 boat production. My uncle owned a 1939 32' Reg Freeman design with the same detail. Sold it in 1962 before purchasing a Morgan Giles West Channel Class. In the summer of 1966, Uncle taught me to sail on the West Channel Class on the River Orwell at Woolverstone. (Harwich Yacht Club) Believe a year or two later, a young Dylan Winter arrived from London to attend the Woolverstone school for boys next door. --Small world.

    Cape Cod has been in business a long time. They still build the 24' Raven you're familiar with.

    With exception of the shipping channel, Mobile Bay is fairly shallow --9 to12 feet above mud and sand with little tide. Gunkholing to neighboring waters I guess about the same. Gulf of Mexico is a bit deeper. Nothing around here compares with the beauty of Maine's coast. The lobster pots, I wouldn't be too concerned with but granite ledges lurking under the water....bad juju.
