Nice pics. The Mason design is sweet. A real sea-kindly looking hull.
Is it me, or does the cabin structure on the Mason design look like the top of one of those old time aluminum camping trailers?

Is "Shoestring" the name of the boat, or a description of the jackstand arrangement?

'Shoestring's cabin is weathered wood, although it may look like metal in the photo, and Mason's design for cabin tops was a more or less standard feature at Sparkman and Stephens. Hughman- Did you stop to look at the Luke boatyard 'museum' which is about 100 yards from the 'Shoestring'? Did you drive down to Ocean Point... and could you see Monhegan from there that day?

Where's Shane? :D
