I've been working on the S Boat painting from the photo I posted a few days ago, and I thought y'all might like to see how it's coming along. It's 12" X 24". I liked the composition of the photo,

Adagio just started the Port Huron to Mackinaw race In her 52'nd year of racing. First large wood-epoxy boat boat built without fasteners. She rates faster than the Santa Cruz 70's.

Does it come with a codpiece?  And I can easily singlehand or cruise with the wife and no crew. I say that a lot when I see an exotic, beautiful car, or a mansion that is just too f'n big

Yeah, people still like B-40's, but the SW-42 is a better boat in every way. The SW-51 is also a terrific boat. Jim McCurdy was one of the great yacht designers.

The BI-40 has always been the better design of the Tripp designed 40s and gives the SWs in the same size range a run for their money as well as the Owens Cutter-derived Competition 41. But it doesn’t have the H on the sails so it’s often overlooked.
 

Then again, I may be partial.

I've been on one of the Migrator built BI 40's. Really an incredible build. I forget Eric's last name who built it, he was aboard. 

They will probably beat a SW-42, certainly on handicap, on a reach because of the low aspect yawl rig, but stand no chance upwind. I know this because maybe 15 years ago I overhauled a group of them on the way to Block Island, appropriately, coming from miles behind and passed them all upwind with my SW-42. 

I will say, the boat I was on was beautifully thought out, beautifully laid out, superb build. They were docked next to me in Bermuda after the 2011 Marion-BDA race. We spent a lot of time going back and forth between the boats admiring the different ideas and solutions.

A long time ago a guy I had known from a certain Quaker school in Providence was restoring one of them.

I need some help here. I've been trying to upload photos of a beautiful visitor to our club guest dock, a Morris 53, taken more than a week ago but it won't work. I think perhaps the files are too big. I've tried everything I can think of, including printing as a pdf and then trying to copy but not getting it to work. Any suggestions gratefully accepted. She's just gorgeous.

Try resizing the files or upload to say Imgur and copy as BBCode(forums)

Morris 53? sure it's not a M52.

Look forward to seeing her.

Where's your club? Does your club have guest moorings and drinks? I'm always looking to visit places like that. B)

Hmm, sort of the other coast, but thanks for the invite.:rolleyes:  You have the same offer at a couple of east coast clubs, plus I'll take you for a sail. 

I don't know how many of those they've built, but that looks like one I went aboard a few years ago. A very nice boat.

Having a wooden boat myself, and I know her current status, that really helps my inferiority complex. Thank you very much ;)

Red Herring looks even better now with her new sails. Absolutely cool. A bit out of this world, but cool.

Here is one design that I have admired since I was ca. six years old. A Hanseat 68/69, the yard was from Glückstadt, near Hamburg. This is one of their earlier models and it features this distinctive arrow slit cabintop.  That was the first time in my life that as design feature on a sailboat really struck me. I still find this design cool, back then I wouldn't have known, but today it reminds me a bit of a Stormtrooper helmet. Also quite practical for more headroom, light and forward visibility from below.

They also feature wooden masts and some owners have them until today, kind of the same school of thought as Folkboat owners, I guess. 

Although it was the time, they were not designed after IOR, and I think it shows in the hull shape, The max beam is way forward and some even came with keel/Cb configuration, which is handy on the Elbe and the German bight.

Dimensions (m): length: 10,2, beam: 2,98, draft: 1,4 . 

They also keep their prices up, as they are often very well maintained. Gut in Schuss, as we say in German.

A location might help. Have you tried using Google Maaahnevermind. ;)

Yes, that is certainly not original. Looks more like a two-tonner / 50-Footer rig.

Or it is a converted two-tonner, deckshouse looks a bit odd...

Yeah, drinking heavily then trying to find a mooring can be tough. 

Reminds me of the story of the lobsterman who'd been drinking at a poker game on Islesford (Little Cranberry). He left to row home a little bit before the game broke up. When the others got down to the dock they found him blissfully rowing away, stern still tied to the dock.

If they were smart, they have brought string to tie together a bunch of those penguins. Then they could FLY over those mountains! Oh wait.......

Seriously, the James Caird is definitely a cool boat.

Check out this new(ish) schooner, built to a Howard Chapelle design. Quite a bit of boat for $90,000. Not sure about the cut of her foresail though. Something looks a bit odd to my eye.

The highest point in the Shackleton Traverse is "only" 3000', but it can be one of the most miserable times on earth, accord to Dave Hahn, who'se done it 5 times I think. Given that he's summitted Everest 15 times, he should know miserable.

I suspect it wasn't quite as miserable as that boat trip though. :D

The fact they chose to climb across the island rather than continuing to sail around to the other side speaks volumes IMO.

Maybe the lack of windward sailing ability and possibility of being blown away from the island (certain death) drove the decision.

Zackly. All kinds of horribleness in that story, with the supreme ultimate goodness that they survived and went on to rescue their fellow crew. I believe it was Worsley that also wrote he could remember the exact shape of every single ballast rock, because of trying night after night to find a spot to sleep on them.

Finding the island was an amazing feat of navigation.

Actual people on board give this a sobering perspective, add to that just how cold the water is down at those latitudes combined with the normally nasty waves and winds, it’s a wonder they made it at all.

Respect.

Watched the documentary, a fool's mission but miraculously they completed the re-enactment.  Didn't look like much fun down below and then the VHF puked and they lost touch with the escort vessel.  Probably seemed a little too real at the time.

Luffes are great. Good to see the .20 is out. I must say, I'm not a fan of the hull windows, though. And I can see, what they tried with the platform there, but it looks a bit bolted on. 

But overall: very happy to see them putting out sth. new that is sporty and has a more classic look. Definitely a good alternative to the X4.0, would be nice to see a head to head comparison.

I don’t know whether to love or hate this post.  This is something I really would love to own, but as was previously said, the maintenance would be a nightmare.  Excepting, if this is what I really had to have, I would have annual or semiannual professional maintenance budgeted for work on the bottom, brightwork and all the systems.

Cape Cod Shipbuilding started molding their 23' Marlin in the late '50s. The design is derived from the Herreshoff Fish Class, a plank on frame boat.

You can have Cape Cod Shipbuilding build one, today. Compare that to a zillion 23' sailboats that have come and gone in the last 60 years.

We're about 75% full of moored boats that can safely be tackled, with ample swinging room,  in an average of 30' of water leaving a 2 way channel through the middle,...I'd guess.

There is enough room to sail through the harbor, if you're a good sailor. Come to think of it, we have no restrictions on sailing in the harbor as some places do. You can also plant a lobster trap under my counter.

Of all the cool boats in New England, the coolest may be the H 12 1/2. Herreshoff drew the plans in 1914 for a 'boys first boat' (girls didn't count then and weren't allowed to vote either). Not a particularly expensive boat (relative to boats in general) or hard to build. 

Today, over a 100 years later, H 12 1/2's, in various builds of both glass, cold moulded and plank on frame, are like family jewels. 

1810892072_RockportHarbor2020H121-2.thumb.jpg.fe0df6cdcce0355ff6987d9b751ca0a9.jpg

And the H 12 1/2 is surely NOT the boys first boat anymore.

Most people I see sailing H 12 1/2's are experienced sailors that appreciate these boats. 

The fog rolled in right behind SKY BIRD as she docked up and was tended to. That's what fog does, nothing new.

This is probably the first photo of a bunk with bedding that actually looks clean and inviting - maybe I've seen too many of the very opposite on "Mocking Ads on CraigsList."

Lovely boat, even though it is a death trap.

This is probably the first photo of a bunk with bedding that actually looks clean and inviting - maybe I've seen too many of the very opposite on "Mocking Ads on CraigsList."

Lovely boat, even though it is a death trap.

That Vee berth doesn't have a filler piece, making slipping across for a snuggle nearly as dangerous as the companionway.

Check out this centre cockpit, kauri composite 52' Ketch, designed by Laurie Davidson. This boat could have very long legs.

Wow I really like that boat! Talk about get in and go.

Is Kauri also called Western red ceder down there?

Looks a bit like an Amel, though knowing Mr Davidson's design skills, I bet she's a darn sight quicker.

There are a ton of the Amels in Panama by us, I can't get away from the Tupperware thing they have going on.  There was a new 60 something next to us in Gulfito the lines seemed better.  This looks more like getting the Amel right by my super prejudice eye.

Nah, Sassa. My bad. I got the construction of the two Davidson designs confused. It was the 46'er Samasan, which was built in kauri, not Tauranga. Hard to find the perfect boat, eh? ;-)
