    Any idea what this lovely creature is? Pretty Jane, the one with the green sheerstrake?

    I'd love to know more about her.

    Looks like a Rushton sailing Canoe, or maybe one of Iain Oughtred's modern takes on the same thing. I don't see any fasteners; is it glued-lapstrake plywood?

    I think Pretty Jane is a Rushton design owned by Bob Lavertue of the Springfield Fan Centerboard company. Bill Clements built her, IIRC. He's got another sailing canoe called Apple Pie.

    She's absolutely stunning. That she (presumably) has a fan centerboard makes my heart go pitter-pat, too. Does anyone have any photos of her under sail? My Google-fu isn't up to the task.

    I think Nord Vinden may have been demoted in my pantheon. (Not eliminated, just demoted.)

    I think if you look to some threads with pictures from previous Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festivals at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum you will find some more pictures. Eye in Hand photography took some of the images. There are also a few images on Thomas Armstrong's 70.8% blog (http://70point8percent.blogspot.com/...-festival.html)

    Thanks, Canoez. I think I found photos of that festival, and gleaned a few photos of her for my pretty boats file, but I didn't find any that I could be sure were her under sail.

    Now you're just taunting me, Peter.

    But yes, I'll take one of these, please:

    Great photo.....do you have one closer??? I like the composition of this one but I'd like to see the Blackskimmer a little more.

    I think you give me too much credit, Peter. Faffing about with anchor patterns is one thing, a proper sailing canoe is entirely another.

    It does have me pipe-dreaming, though.

    Side note: this is one of the prettiest color combinations I have ever seen, and on an amazingly elegant little dinghy:
