    I have been spending the last two days packaging the model for the owner to enjoy. It, being very fragile needed some creative boxing rather than being shoved in a box of popcorn.
    Photos to come next. Thank you all for your supportive comments!

    Jay, in 'Boats with an open mind', chapter 43, Bolger discusses a 32" brigantine. Very much worth reading IMO. Frank

    Sadly the project never got beyond the deck plan model which showed the crowding of guests aboard such a small boat to carry a topsail schooner rig! If an attempt were made to build such a boat at twenty eight feet of length, it would become crowded with five persons aboard and because of the dictated shallow draft it would have no room below and be very slow and awkward up wind due to parasitic aerodynamic and hydraulic drag. Many small schooners have been built that are pretty to look at but are less than efficent up wind.

    Maybe a revenue cutter rig with square topsail and crojack would work better
    This from Witzen of 1640 is quite piratical,

    and will work in skinny waters with the leeboards.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Thanks Nick, for the input on the single master with lee boards. The owner wants a Brigantine so that knocks out the advantage of the sloop or cutter rig. Lee boards are also not wanted.
    All I can do is wish him well.
