Anyone built one of these halibut schooners that Chappelle found in the Strait of Juan de Fuca (Fig. 46 in Amer. Small Sailing Craft) and Ruell Parker redrew and featured in his Sharpie book? I'd like to see and hopefully sail one prior to building one myself.
I already own a 25' sharpie yawl based on the presto sharpie design. We took her north to Echo Bay and Queen Charlotte Strait this last summer and suffered two knockdowns in a Strait of Georgia storm.
