    Default Pics of Atkins' boats

    Sometimes I just like to look through the Atkin plans checking out all the different offerings...
    Some of the designs have some pics of boats that have been built, but many do not.
    Any body have pics of their Atkin designed boat to share?
    Surely there must be more out there that don't show on the Atkin designs website.
    What do ya got?

    There was a build thread but photobucket trashed it.

    Maid of Endor:





    Another thread was ruined there.

    And finally Julia, an Ingrid Ketch.

    Actually it looks like the Bagaduce thread is still alive:

    http://forum.woodenboat.com/showthre...kin-s-Bagaduce

    Which is great because I like that boat very much! I was not familiar with the design. It even looks like something I might be able to build. Hmm.... Would a Volvo MD1 be too big for that boat?

    Yes still alive, but watermarked into oblivion.

    The power of an MD1 is about right, maybe on the high side. The size and weight are the limiting factor. It could be made to work I'm sure, but there is no bilge to sink that big flywheel into.

    I've been giving serious thought to converting mine to electric. Seems a good place for it, I never do multi-day trips on the boat and the silence would be very welcome after the air cooled stationary engine I'm using.

    I know Riley did quite a bit of work, do you know why he is selling and is there an advert up anywhere with latest pictures?

    Blow Fish is built to William Atkin's Perigee design. My version eliminated the cockpit and extended the cabin aft, but otherwise is a Perigee including her gaff rig, though I did use dyneema in place of wire for the standing rigging.

    Riley moved back west, doing a major restoration at the Harbor History Museum in Gig Harbor. He did a lovely job on "Davey Lewis"; there is talk among his friends about sailing her to Penobscot Bay this summer, to accompany the Atlantic Challenge training session.

    She was on a mooring in Warren (now Holiday's mooring, since the harbormaster refused to allow us to moor a wooden boat in East Providence and sailed around the Bay for a couple years. Now on the hard in Bristol.

    Ah ha yeah He can be a little gruff but he is a good guy IMO. Just read your e-mail. We should chat for sure. I may just do the mooring this year and give up my slip in Apponaug but I have been there a while and the marina is starting to fill up so I'm not sure what I will do about that because I really like my spot there too and don't want to lose it permanently. I use the mooring as a getaway during the season when it is just too crowded at the Marina. I'll give you a shout at some point.

    Thanks to all for sharing these. I am an Atkin fan, and always enjoy seeing fotos.

    Also - if you have Atkin fotos, but haven't shared them to the Atkin website, let me suggest you do so. I know Pat Atkin would appreciate it, as would John K. who put the site together.

    Love these designs, I have notes on my desk to order plans soon. I'm going with simple so i know it will get done sooner. I Still have a penobscot 17 unfinished here but I still feel the need to order plans for either scandal or C. G. Junior both pretty skiffs.

    I have a friend who once worked for West Sail who owned an Atkins Ingred as his own boat. The two are about the same in length but light years apart in hull design! His sailed and theirs didn't. Most of the workers and members of the schooner faction in our area referred to the West Sail as the "Worst Sail", a boat that had lots of space below in a fat hull in order to carry enough stores for a long voyage in order to keep the crew alive until land was sighted and the anchor was down. Some freelancers built them of ferro cement and the do it youself yards were filled with half finished hulks until the land developers came to call.

    Mr. Madison, are there any plans to finish that little Maid of yours? I miss that thread and lusted after that boat when I was much younger.

    Ingrid is a much faster boat than Westsail....it is also quite a bit longer and heavier.
    Ingrid has not won a Transpac,Westsail has.

    this thread popped up at a great time, can anyone put a name on the below design?
    first saw it for sale on ebay with a huge hole in the side after going aground in a storm maybe 10 years ago, then it got fixed up and sold. Seems to have had less and less attention over time and not in a great state now.
    Theres a lot going on for a 30ft hull length, it seems like something that might have looked better on paper than in practice... it still catches my eye from certain angles though
