    Default Einsteins "Tummler" would make a great project

    This popped up on a FB page I'm on, its a completely new one on me & wow what a lovely thing. If I were to build something trailerable this would probably be it.

    Would love to know if there are detailed plans out there or if is someone has built a recreation already. There are some plans listed on that site which would help no doubt.

    If a boat were ever to named "Relativity" this would be it

    There's even some clever design details for a trailer sailer, a counter balanced folding mast, which is a really neat idea for ballast I must say, assuming its low enough. Its a really neat layout, almost as if someone clever had input into the plan!

    I can't find much else about it though

    There are lots of them in Germany they are "dinghy-cruiser" class boats. Google Jollenkreuzer.

    Class is healthy and active, new boats are buildt. Google "20er Jollenkreuzer" or "R-Boot". Newer boats are more race oriented, beeing an early example (class rules published 1923) Einstein's boat was a pure cruiser. Regardless of cruiser or racer all boats are unballasted, the centerboards maximum weight is limited to 25kg. Minimum boat weight is 730kg, max dimensions are LOA: 7,75m, BOA: 2,5m. The 20sqm sail area name is misleading (measured area) boats can and usually have 30sqm + 55sqm spinnaker. I have included a video of what can happen whike sailing one.
    I doubt the plans for Einsteins specific boat have survived the war, but there are many similar cruising oriented designs in existance ask the class association. Or just buy one, there are usually enough cuban mahagony planked crusing designs on the market.
