    Well there are a few strange details. The motor well seems like an afterthought since she appears to have been built with an inboard in mind even if one was never fitted. And the ad says she's a "teach1" design but according to the ad she's 18' and the Atkin's site says Teach is 15' 6". And then there is the rig. I'm not much of a sailor but it seems like the foot of the sail is a bit low given the height of the cuddy? So there are questions. Still, a neat boat for a reasonable price I think and the details seem not too hard to sort out.

    Being a Seattleite, erm Seattler, surely youíre gonna efit her as a lug yawl, fit some oars, and use the motor well as a beer cooler holder???
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Well, yeah something like that would be the plan. Although I'll confess to enjoying a nice dry cider of an afternoon, rather than beer (will I lose any chance of membership in the Sail'n'Oar crew now?) But with two big boats in the water and a 17' whitehall that *still* needs to be refinished in the shop I'm just living vicariously here.
