    Question Know this beautiful dinghy?

    I assume Nat Herreshoff (see sail and Coquina lines), but don't know the actual design. Any clue? Found these images on a Finnish Raid site w/o any contact info.
    Thanks-

    Images didn't translate at least for me.

    Looks like a coracle with a deck and a small rectangular cockpit added, photo taken from overhead, probably a drone. Could be one of those traditional Vietnamese fishing boats, same deal with the deck. Or maybe just an inflatable life raft?

    Yes, that is a Coquina with a modified sail plan. The original owner wrote about it in another thread. The NGH 404 sail designation is for N.G. Herreshoff plan number 404, the Coquina.

    I was expecting to see pics of Mike Hanyi's Herreshof Riviera replica but that's not it. It does look like a Coquina with a completely different rig.

    Found this. Looks like case has been moved forward a couple frames. Makes sense.












    These show up?

    I think this was recently featured in either a SCA article or a WB article about cool places to sail. Too many magazines to keep up with...
