    Default Anyone know what design this is...

    Other than the fact the chain plates on the outside look horrible, I love the looks of this baby. Could be my retirement build in a few years if I find out the design.

    The wife says I can have a mistress as long as she has ribs made of white oak.

    It's definitely not Katie, although I see why you might go there. Looks a bit bigger to me. It might be close to LF Herreshoffs 23 foot centerboard sloop, like the LILY that Maynard Bray owns, but I don't think it's that one either.

    Anyway, the boat is sweet and the photo fantastic !
    The chain plates aren't where they should be ?
    Strangely, the aft lower shroud, is visible only in the reflection.

    Looks like a Francis Herreshoff Design No. 43.

    The pic has beenphotoshoped. Seems there was another boat in the background. Might be a schooner as we can see two masts in the reflection.
    Lovely boat.
    Steven, the one on your pic seems waiting for a gaff rig. With a bowsprit?

    Bray's boat is not a PRUDENCE, PRUDENCE is a full keel boat and is not lapstrake, although it could be built that way. Bray's is L. Francis' 23 foot centerboard sloop design. PRUDENCE has more of a spoon bow, among other things.

    The boat in this photo, has a similarity in cabin design to a PRUDENCE, and possibly could be a lapstrake version of a PRUDENCE, but it would also be sporting a more modern rig, as neither of those designs had a fixed backstay.
