What is the sailboat on page 38 of WB 240? Something about it hits my eye just right.

You have a good eye, M. That is Joel White's Mimi Rose. Hull and deck by Gordon Swift and finished out by Bill himself. I was lucky enough to go for a sail on her last weekend up at WoodenBoat. Now owned by a great young couple who keep her in Belfast.

I'd been looking at and considering Mimi Rose when she was sold to Colin Sarsfield and Anne Bryant.
She wrote a blog about their trip south along the ICW and back http://taughtbythesea.com/mimi-rose/#.U_i5KkgUWn0

The tender is another of my favorite designs, an Atkin Vintage.
