It was an odd time the late IOR period. Fantastic fleets, great racing and many beautiful looking boats that were absolute cunts of things to sail. Back them most  owners actually knew how to sail and

Having renovated an IOR 1-tonner, I feel obliged to point out that there are way cheaper ways to get a tidy boat on to a start line

She’s been sitting in the bushes too long.  

Can’t find a boat that suits the admiral (and suits me). in a location that suits the admiral.  Close, but no cigar.  Since the admiral’s kept me solvent, fed, and generally happy in all the family like things, I do have to bend just a touch to please her.  So, I am looking at poor little Anna, sitting in the bushes, generally covered in mold and pine straw. A sad ending to a little boat that has brought us so much pleasure for 31 years.  Still, she has port side damage and needs a new mast.  (New sails would be kind a nice too). 

So, today, I decided, wait no more.  I’m gonna do whatever it takes to get her back on the lake. (And maybe on the bay too). First step, giver her a GOOD cleaning.  And yes, she cleans up darned good.  

Next step, finding a good fiberglass shop to get her port side and mast step right and check the keel for bedding.  Then, a good top coat on the topsides and a smooth barrier coat on the bottom.  Then get a new extrusion to a rigger and get a mast built.  Boy would I love a carbon mast, but probably will be thrilled with an aluminum mast that is straight.  

Why is she here, because she has so much of the IOR influence in her lines.  

First picture is as she is today, second is her best day racing, doing a horizon job on the fleet with every boat in the fleet owing her time and third picture just cruising in Caney Creek Lake

lose the spinnaker halyard?

Yes and no.  The admiral helmed into one of the nastiest broaches ever on the one and only time she ever helmed while flying a spinnaker.  Now, she prefers that we have three aboard to normally fly our spinnaker.  That way I never have to leave the helm.  However in this race, we were racing in the no spinnaker class.  The wind was so light, I doubt a spinnaker would have flown properly anyway.  The poled out jib worked great.  You’ll notice, Brenda had to physically hold the pole out

Technically we had advantages that all the other larger and quicker rated boats did not have.  First, she was a trailer boat and had a clean bottom. (As opposed to some that had marine fisheries masquerading as bottoms) second, we had a decent, crisp main and a fresh Kevlar genoa.  Anna was probably flying the best sails of the fleet that day. Finally, Anna at 1400 lbs displacement and an IOR shaped hull, is a beast in light air.  A good fart will keep her going for a couple of miles.    

So, why yes?  Recently we had our jib halyard go bad, so we replaced it with our brand new spinnaker halyard.  Had not had time yet to replace the spin halyard before Laura blew her off of the trainer and pretty much made a bow of the mast.

Beautiful! Rob Humphreys always makes those. Just found a pic of: Humphreys Yacht Design: "Blizzard was probably the first fractional-rigged IOR 50 footer, designed for Ernest Juer and built by Green Marine in Lymington. After extensive campaigning on the American Fifty Foot circuit the boat was sold to an Austrian syndicate headed by Andreas Hanakamp, and raced around the world in the Hong Kong Challenge. The most recent information we have is that she is now a working boat, used for sail training purposes.", see: https://www.humphreysdesign.com/yacht-designs/sail/blizzard/ Kan vara en bild av båtracing, segelbåt och utomhus

Still about four or five left in Detroit, and the pictured one from Chicago.  Marina fire in 99 or 00 (during that winter I think) burned a huge chunk of that fleet.  And yes....typically two spreaders, not three.

Last I heard, still rotting away at Betts.

From January (in this same thread): "WSD is rotting away in Anacortes, WA, an old friend and former North Sails guy who is now into Alfa Romeos owns her, asked me if I want to be a partner and I ran away as fast as my old limbs would allow me. I walked up a ladder and walked on the deck, was careful not to fall through.   Very sad ending to a great Schumacher boat. " 

@Somebody Else might know something more recent?

Same experience, Fred S. asked me to be his partner.  I stepped very gingerly no to fall through the deck.  What a boat in her day.

Anyone could keep up the varnish on that.

Says the guy that lives where the sun don't shine :-) (note, It has been a goal of mine to visit.  It looks beautiful).  My current boat will have a wood tiller someday, with a sunbrella cover, but doesn't have any wood above deck right now.  Keeping wood varnished in the south is better left to those who can afford to pay someone to do it.

Beautiful little boat though!

IMO they all look good - offhand I can't recall a really ugly flush deck boat.

I'm sure someone will now post one but they are rare, if they exist at all.

The boat has to be over about 40 ft to pull off a flush deck - otherwise the relatively large amount of freeboard makes them look disproportionate IMO.

And keep in mind boats like Cascade (not sure if you would call that flush deck and she had a lot of other ugliness inherent in her design) - or the flat top Cal 40 (I think maybe one was built - White Squall?)  Although even that doesn't look so bad - just not as nice as a standard Cal 40.

Cascade and that Cal 40 were what is called "raised deck" boats - different than a true flush deck - the break in the sheer at the cockpit has to be handled well or they can be ugly.

The smaller Cal "flat tops" were some of my favourites but it didn't work as well on the 40.
