One is my FD another is a boat I once owned, there is one that I do some volunteer work on and another is home.

Rastus,
What is the boat in the pic 3rd from the left?

Tawhiri a 1933 Colin Wild. Winner of the 1940 Lyttleton to Wellington race and the 1951 Wellington to Lyttleton race. She is currently under restoration by a trust. The pic is of the return trip sailing into Nelson harbour.


Thanks for posting that Rastus. I lived in Nelson as a kid in the early 60's and I well remember Tawhiri then; she was and is a lovely looking boat. I also remember a gorgeous little double ender sailed by the Jorgensen brothers that used to win everything but my long suffering grey matter cannot remember the name of that one. I went to Auckland Point Primary school, lived in Nile Street and was a junior member of the Aurora Sailing Club which looked suspiciously like what is now Nelson Yacht Club. I was also a Cub member of the Iron Duke Sea Scouts and remember rowing the longboats out to Haulashore Island. I was taught the fundamentals of sailing, the old fashioned way, by Pete and Aughtie Harley(of the brewery family) who both used to sail with my Dad on occasions and helped him sail his first yacht, a pretty little 20fter called Kipling, from Picton round to Nelson through French Pass.
I am just doing up an old Opti for my young son and it will be named Pelorus Jack in fond memory of those wonderful times in one of the loveliest parts of NZ. I have lived in Melbourne Aus for 40 years now but nearly 30 years ago my late Dad and I shared a J24 of the same name.


SportsCar
Thanks for that, the ASC as you remember is now the NYC. A great little club that has recently celebrated it's 150th anniversary. There are still a few old boys around, ie. The Harris brothers, the Wins and the Goulds. I'll ask around and see if they remember Kipling

Steve Rander arranged to display her at the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Show 3 times.

Almost 2 out of 3 folks on board to take a look at her said

"She can't be a wooden boat. Doesn't look like a wooden boat"

My wife caught me talking in my sleep for years after- "no, she is a wood boat" "no, she's not a racing boat she's a cruiser"
"well, we think she deserves to in a the show" etc. etc. etc. Repeat over 1,500 times.

Sorry I can't post a pic right here. Pitiful computer skills. And a balky hard drive. We were on show with Rage and Hana Mari.

For some reason, you have to right click on the address and click "open in new window" argh. BTW, that's Tim Kernan tending the really wrinkle free jib.

Amati is now, and probably always will be one of my favorite boats. I just love the design. someday I will get up there with some time and I will message you and bring beer and if I'm lucky, I'll get to look her over in person.

Loch Longs! I remember them. Immediately after graduation from College (in the middle of Ohio), I taught sailing in Scotland on the Kyles of Bute at Tighnabruaich back in 1974. We had a Loch Long there and I recall that it was a nice sailing keel boat. Nice to know they are still being sailed.
There was a neat local class called Zeniths - trapeze dinghy, National 12's, Wayfarers, Enterprises, a lovely gaff rigged open cutter, "Iolaire". I always felt lucky to get the cutter or the Loch Long to teach in. A fun summer (except for the cold water!)

Yup, it's Aldeburgh. Not sure a Loch Long is a mini Dragon, but they do have a great fleet!
Pic is before I'd done much sailing with her after putting her back togther, by about a week after that pic was taken she had pushed the putty out of every one of her seams and looked pinstriped, then she looked very rough!
She was built in 1948 so she's not doing that badly, and I get to sail a dragon on a students budget...

My classic Cape Cod Frosty (I'm showing the fleet how to come out of a roll tack in a breeze). I built the boat a while back with $250,000 I had left over from the sale of some GE stock. Nothing but the finest materials went into building her. She is maintained in bristol condition and gets me laid all the time.

It's Astor, last I heard she was in Aruba. It looks like her in the pic, the pilot house is unique. She was originally built as a day sailor, when Richard bought her she had some awful house that had been added, he built the new one, much more in line with how Fife would have done it. They are great people, looking forward to joining them next year for some sailing/racing.

She is a very similar age to my Dad's first Dragon, which I think was D K-192. I just hate it when the paint does that pinstripe thing. The Local Loch longs get around the problem by splining the seams.

My dad's old Loch Long is in Aldeburgh now as well, No29, Akela. I was very impressed with the layout and build of the new loch longs from Aldeburgh, when they were up last year, Simon obviously has no problem swapping between the Loch Long and Dragon. Occasional I get to go sailing on them at Cove Sailing Club when my daughter is out on the dinghies. I have not had the pleasure of racing a dragon for far too long.

Have fun working on the wood during the winter.

Spoke to my dad today and his boat, that was built in 1948, was sail number D-K225. She was built in Norway for the Olympics, but never raced as her owner raced in the 5.5m class instead.

My Grand dad's dragon was sail number D-K95

I want to try to get to Cowes week this year if I can possibly afford it, sailing the boat round like some of the Aldeburgh fleet used to. They seem to get few classics out for the week.

I remember your dad's boat - after he first got it, he kept it at Young's Boatyard, a few slips away from me. He mentioned that his son had an IOD. It's really sad to see what happened to her - she was so beautiful when your dad had her.

The left picture is your dads boat on the old railway at Young's. Brings back old memories (good and bad) of working on my boat on it.

Wow, you have a good memory. Yeah, it is Young's. Getting in and out of there was always dodgy. I recall reaching in the channel with the keel in mud so mucky that it hardly slowed us. In a breeze, you just had to go fast to get through. I remember clearly having the quarter wave drag up so high it washed over the aft deck as we ran into shallow water. Sometimes we'd get stuck though and I remember almost drowning when I jumped over to push off and instead of pushing the boat I pushed myself down into the mud up to the knees. I waved my hands frantically and Dad luckily realized what was happening and pulled me up!
What boat did you have?
Here's a picture of the Six meter just inches from sinking at the slip at Youngs! Super cold and windy. Seams opened by ice and we spent the day in the water, bailing and caulking. Near disaster.

You should ditch your geriatric dragon and get a dragon for geriatrics (or perhaps not, for they do in fact plane, I dun seed it with my own eyes!). Like you say, lots about your way, cheaper and you can push off the mud easier - if you're never on you're not trying hard enough!

In Maryland at Gibson Island, we have an Int 210 fleet. Half of our boats are wood, the rest glass. Completely equal in speed - in fact wood boats have won most regattas. Kind of a double ended Loch Long, with smallish sail plan. The wood boats are plywood and several have been glassed over which has made them largely trouble free. (for now). Built in the 60's. The balso cored glass ones are the problematic boats with soft decks and soggy cores.

You should ditch your geriatric dragon and get a dragon for geriatrics (or perhaps not, for they do in fact plane, I dun seed it with my own eyes!). Like you say, lots about your way, cheaper and you can push off the mud easier - if you're never on you're not trying hard enough!

In Maryland at Gibson Island, we have an Int 210 fleet. Half of our boats are wood, the rest glass. Completely equal in speed - in fact wood boats have won most regattas. Kind of a double ended Loch Long, with smallish sail plan. The wood boats are plywood and several have been glassed over which has made them largely trouble free. (for now). Built in the 60's. The balso cored glass ones are the problematic boats with soft decks and soggy cores.

Does that come with three sails or two?
LL adopted a 200 square foot odd kite in 1977 I think:

Adds greatly to the interest though luddites mumped their gums put their boats away in the shed (sometimes for good!).

Most are carvel mahogany on oak, a few mostly earlier are spruce planked. Latest boats built in Aldeburgh (5 since 1993 I think) are strip planked cedar, this has started a bit of an arms race so some old boats have been rebuild with epoxy wedged seams (no WESTing allowed though).

Still on my original spruce mast, jealous of the backstay flicker, tres moderne!

Here's a thought: As it's a balsa core FRP does that still qualify as a woody?

Stretch the concept. Anyone want to qualify a J24 too?

OK, I'll get my coat.

Not all woodend boat owners are geriatrics! I have at least 40 years before I even consider a Loch Long!
Anyway the dragon is cheaper to run in some ways, there are somany good second hand sails to be had.

The 210s do have spinnakers. We can use the class kite but because we sail them doublehanded mostly, have developed an asymmetrical (see pix). Class spin is a squat, wide sail with a short pole. Hooks back into the main on a run and very inefficient for it's area.
The flicker on the masthead is to enhance our cool factor. Actually, the class 210s (we are an isolated fleet), use a huge genoa. We decided not to use that cumbersome, non tactical sail and instead have a nice, class legal blade jib set up. To get back a little power and balance, we bumped out the top roach about 6-8" and that required the flicker. It is a very nice rig to sail and adequately fast, though not as fast as the genoa. Far more tactical and pleasurable to sail with though.

OK, So I know that this is SAILING anarchy, but Merc has worked a bunch as a committee boat, so I figure it counts.

1946 47' Elco. I've been restoring her for the past 5 years - cruises at 20 knots. According to the log books, John Wayne and Lana Turner used to hang out on her. 11 were built - 3 remain. Merc is the only one in original condition (although I did repower her with diesels in 2005).

To really screw with your sense of propriety, she will be the committee boat at the A-Class nationals at FWYC in FL this spring...

Both boats are still racing in Toronto and my family has owned Thisbe since 1971. Still does not have an engine. Lots of work in the up-keep but it is worth it.

I remember the Etchells boats. I knew of two of them. 4245 and 4242. 4242 was a legend in junior sailing on Long Island Sound. They went like scalded dogs and they drove Leggy Mertz nuts. Dave Pritchard and Matt Haiken won their fair share of pickle dishes with that boat. Several others too.

I sailed against both of those boats. We (our family) had 2752, then got 5261 a red hull named Lickety Split, and after that my younger brother sailed 6200. The latter two boats were glass, of course. When we traded in Little Stowaway for 6200, the buyer of Little Stowaway was there and he said he was going to wetsail it in Essex, Ct. Evidently that did not happen because it won the Nationals the next summer - much to my father's chagrin. We traded it in for a new boat because "it wasn't competitive anymore". The wood boats were fast as long as you could keep them together.

Tinder Box was originally sailed out of Dana Point in SoCal by the original owner (and builder) until the mid/late '80's. As of 6 months or so ago she was in Alamitos Bay (Long Beach--SoCal). As far as I know she's still there. A little worn now, but in her prime she was beautiful and very fast.

My old IOD being "mounted" by a fellow SF Bay fleet member - genuine wood flying!

Makes me weep a little.


Only a bit of fir, mahogany, and ego was injured in the making of this photo.

It was very painful to watch - a pre-start left-turn-Clyde brain-fade. Not a shining moment for our fleet.

Are you sure this isn't a Pari 34? Sure looks like one. Those were S&S lines, not Kirby.

My 1974 Vic Carpenter

gettn ready for the hibernation......



Is this the old bow rudder boat? I think called the GEEK or something close to it?


It was Gleek, and IIRC, it was not a Carpenter build. I think someone said it was in a shed in the middle of nowhere a few years ago.

Are you kidding? It was my boat; I think I know what it was. Don't tell Bruce it's not his design.

New boat in a local racing class by a top notch 4th generation racing builder: http://<span class='...uel.com</span>/ with plenty more photographs.

Family used to have boats by them, 30 years on and not a glass of water.

Interesting choice of a name by that owner ;)

Take it easy there sparky. Don't tell Bruce Kirby that his boat looks like a Sparkman and Stephens? Please. The next time I see him I will mention it. Here is a shot of a Pari 34. The resemblance is uncanny. I have a better shot of this boat that shows the teak decks and stern configuration that looks exactly like Goodwood. BTW, the Pari 34 is also a wood (cold molded) 3/4 tonner from 1976.
