Who can resist a William Atkin design? And with a Jaguar V-12 no less!!!
Is that dock rash on the side? If so, it's a crime!
I think it's just light reflecting in the gloss varnish.

I'd wager the owner is deaf by now with no ear muffs.
As long as the exhausts are properly muffled, that V-12 will sound very soft and smooth, more like a cat purring than a lion roaring

Leave the mufflers off and cruise down Ego Alley on a summer weekend. Stop at Pusser's for a drink. That will put those Cigarette boats to shame.

Main 110, jib 37, total 147.

Ballast 400. Disp not shown. Basically a copy of a boat modeled and built by Archibald Fenton of Gloucester.

Bolger Yarrow recently sold on eBay. Daysailor based on the Tancook Whaler from. One of his prettier small boats.

That's a very cool boat. Wish I'd seen it...

I'm glad I didn't. Might make my Polynavicular Morbus act up again.

Gorgeous boat - too bad Bolger got so focused on oddball practicality at the expense of aesthetics.


That's what I like best about him. If a boat looks like it will do what I have in mind doing that day, it's beautiful to me.

Did you make that up? Very nicely put.
It's been my way of living for a long time. I've had a blast on shitty sailboats, shittier tri-hull powerboats, Bayliners, jet ski's, you name it.

We haven't had enough wind to make me want to sail for weeks (but 92L may change that). I've been messing with my crappy old pontoon boat and POS old square Sylvan jonboat. Neither belongs anywhere near a "coolboats" thread, but they're cool to me.

I'd like to see some other angles of that Bolger boat. Bolger had "the eye". I like everything he did, even the weirdos.

1,
I don't care for that stern. To my eye it looks clumsy.

But I like the boat.
I'm looking at it from a pure utility standpoint. That's a great pan fish/swimming/hangout platform for an inland lake. You can beach it too. A huge plus in my water playground.

She looks great, except for the dog house.
