    Default Does anyone know what boat design is this?

    Looking for help identifying this boat design. It was photographed about 20 years ago at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. I believe it was a private boat, not part of the collection. Thanks in advance!

    Not I. Handsome boat, looks v-bottomed.
    Welcome aboard.

    Welcome to the Forum!
    Looks like a Bluejay with a bowsprit.
    That taffrail is kind of silly.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    Thanks for the reply! I can see the bluejay lines - maybe modified with a different centerboard trunk and mast location in the fore deck. Did he move the mast forward to allow for the change in sailing center of gravity with the added bowsprit? I'm looking for my next project to build and I kind of like the uniqueness of the bowsprit on this size boat. I agree with you on the taffrail.
