    Designed and built it for my son in '94. Here's the only other picture I have, scanned and a bit blurry. This picture means so much to me in so many ways. I didn't notice that you draw any people.

    Hello. Well, I made a drawing based on your photo Mr. Etheridge. A gorgeous boat and a handsome young man. Not sure I did justice to either, but...

    Here is one based on Mr. McMullen's boat, which I quite admire. Not sure I got the hardware right. My photo was a little pixelated. I did, however, leave in the painty footy-prints.

    Last drawing of 2013. I don't know who this gentleman is, but he seems to be enjoying sailing his lovely boat. Maybe a Caledonia Yawl?
    Happy New Year everyone!

    Nice work, Falcon!

    Came across these looking for some drafting instruments myself this morning. I use them pretty extensively. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Staedtler-Dr...item3a89e0356f






    They are the modern equivalent of the old Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph technical pens. Staedler has gone Rapidograph one better in my opinion. They have a silicone double sealing feature on the point inside the cap, so they don't dry out like the early ones did. I'm partial to metal tip pens. I think they give the line more "snap." I use "felt" tips, but find them not to be quite the same. Given the quality of your work, I'm presuming you've got your own favorites, of course. Nine bucks for a full set of seven Marsmatics is a hell of a deal, though. (They run about $25 for each pen, retail, IIRC.)

    BTW, are you using a camera lucida for your drawings?

    What a nice set! I remember using marsmatic and rapidograph in school. These days, I'm using Micron pens which I think are felt tip. These drawings started as very loose, almost throw-aways. I'd been somewhat blocked in my painting work, and my wife saw this sketch that I was using as a bookmark, and said "that's really cool," so I did a few more.

    I'm flattered that one might think I'm using a C.L., but these are freehand. Have you read Hockney's book about the camera lucida, called "Secret Knowledge?" As someone who has made paintings using projections, I found it pretty persuasive.

    Thanks for the tip about metal tips, no pun intended!

    Thanks, and thanks for the reference. I just bought Sloane's "A Reverence for Wood." I love it!

    Oh! You gotta get Sloane's A Museum of Early American Tools too! That is my favorite out of all of his books, each and every one of which is also my favorite! Also Jan Adkin's Moving Heavy Things. Masterpieces both of pen and ink illustration and of explanation of low-tech engineering.

    I haven't read Hockney's book, but I have read reviews of it and I saw him recently on Bill Moyers show on PBS. I'm convinced of his theory without reading the book, actually. You obviously have a "good eye" and academic training and the old masters were a quantum leap from there, but still, the perspective is just too good all the time and you can only get subject to sit still for so long. I'm guessing a lot of them used camera lucidas for roughing out. Why not?





    And it's about 33" by 24" which is sort of a CL give-away. Not that it takes anything away from it at all in my book. Apparently, a lot of academics got all bent out of shape that Hockney would even suggest such a thing!

    Here is one I drew today of a Coquina Yawl, I believe. From what I could tell from my source photo, there is no rudder/tiller. Is this something one can do with the yawl rig and weight-shifting, etc.?

    The Coquina has rope steering, the rope goes through the transom to the rudder head. And it goes all around the inside of the boat so you can steer from anywhere in the boat.
    I've been enjoying your drawings, too. Thanks.

    Rope steering can be set up on a lot of different boats. I have it on my Chamberlain Dory Skiff (your first drawing in this thread) and love it, but it certainly takes some getting used to.

    This one shows the aft end of the boat in post 23. I think I found the pix on a yacht sales web page.

    Here is a drawing of a chilly New Year's Day at Mystic Seaport.

    Bob C., if you're reading this, I think I figured out why some of the drawings look like they were made with the help of a camera lucida or other type of tracing. For some of them I do a preliminary pencil drawing, which I then erase. This leads to a strangely confident and accurate line maybe? Most of the early drawings in this thread are just going for it with pen on page. Sometimes though, it really goes pretty well, like the bird below. No pencil, just a skeleton, pen and paper.

    Thanks for looking!

    The Mystic drawing might be my favorite one yet--these are very cool. The bird, too, for that matter. Any word on how your 38th Voyagers application is going?

    I was going to apply but decided not to at the last minute--too much else going on this summer for me. But good luck--I hope you get chosen so you can do lots more drawings!

    Thanks Tom,
    No word yet. They'll let the finalists know by the end of the month, then choose from them by March.
    I just read the sample of your book. Love it! Is the boat's name from Pooh? I'll look forward to reading more. Hope you make it to shore!

    Thanks--I appreciate the kind words about my writing. Indeed, Jagular is very much from A. A. Milne's The House at Pooh Corner. I've always thought this might be the funniest sentence ever written in the English language:

    'What do Jagulars do?' asked Piglet, hoping that they wouldn't.

    Seems to fit my boat perfectly...
