When I rerigged my 1907 boat , 41 ft on deck x 8'6" x 6'5", 31' wl, I went a little bit conservative for the style of the day with 1050 ft( straight geometric measurement off the sailplan) and over the years came to believe that the boat weighed something just less than 9 metric tonnes.maybe 8.5.

If thats of any use.

Here is a cool boat, not sail but since Bill Garden has come up here I'm going to throw this one out. Seems like it would be a great Inside Passage cruiser. I like the look of the lapstrake, not seen often at this size.

I dunno, Ras, might have been nicer to extend the diagonal planking to the sheer. Personally, I'd vote this vessel to the "other" thread.

Not ugly enough for the other thread, but I have seen better looking back ends...

It's not to bad but I have never liked that Q& D style of lapstrake planking. You start planking at the chine and just keep going,letting the planks run wild at the the sheer,then just take a batten and cut 'em off to the sheer line.It just looks wrong to me to have plank lines run out like that.

I agree Viktor. It looks wrong to me as well. It looks like maybe some sort of lining off and spiling was done but the results just don't look right.

That makes three of us. I think it looks funky to have the lapstrakes dead end on the sheer lile that.

It saves a bunch of material and a lot of fitting and steaming, but it does look cheap......Grenfell in Vancouver always did it this way, I could never understand why folks considered them high quality boats.

Agree. Chris Craft Sea Skiffs had their lapstrake end at the stem, the way it was meant to be, the result, a vastly superior looking hull.

Steeler:

That is a very handsome skiff. I couold own that with much pride. I'm trying to find the ideal boat for my beach so I can introduce Violet to sailing. That is not the boat but I like it a lot.

One too many portlights for a little boat.

And the cabin! That isn't a cabin, it's a coffin.

edit: I do like the rear cabin idea - it eliminates all the centerboard and mast problems of a forward one.
