    Default A Pete Culler almost Bugeye ketch or schooner

    The forward mast is larger but the sails are identicale. And she's considerably slimmer than the actual bugeye form. Sort of an odd sharpie. She's a Capt. Pete Culler, Cape built, neglected, taken over as a museum project, out of steam, now found a dreamer. She has some history in this sort of thing down-Cape in years past.

    She moves, even without a jib.

    I did not have Burke's book handy but got better filled in. In the book, the plan is "Old Glory". Inspired loosely by the LFH Meadow Lark, Triumph is Capt. Pete Culler's artistic offering. She's 36-0 x 8-6 x 2-0 of about 4 T. Her sails are Jib 118, Main 206, Mizzen 193. She had been used for sail training and such in Pleasant Bay and it's hoped that by next year she'll be ready for adventure camp use. Could be fun.
