    Default Pretty motor sailors

    This motor sailor belonged to friends of our family when I was growing up. I think she lives up to here owners statement that she was the sweetest boat on the river. Built in Maine in 1950, she was 31 feet and had sort of a modified Lightning rig. I always thought she was a very pleasing looking boat with a nice amount of "old school" look about her.

    Very nice! There was a similar Monk (I think) design on eBay a while back, maybe without the sailing rig. Reminds me a bit of the Atkin designed Calistoga V. Canelli I saw on Off Center Harborís website. It didnít have a sailing rig although a riding sail and possibly more would be nice. Well done boats like this have a real functional beauty.

    That is pretty, has a very Atkin air about it.
