    Default Long and lean

    Something put a bee in my bonnet this morning for the Swede 55


    And of course the Columbia Sabre (though that cabin design has not aged well)


    What else is out there with a strong L/B ratio?
    What color are their hands now?

    A friend had a Columbia Sabre (many years ago). It was sometimes referred to as a 5.5 metre, no idea if it really qualified for that.

    The International 510 designed by C. Raymond Hunt had a L/B ratio of more than 6:1

    Elvestrom's "Aphrodite 101" is fairly long and lean: https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/aphrodite-101

    I wonder how Noah is. He dropped off the forum after he bought his Swede, might have been 15 years or so ago.

    A new frame for the boat tent?
    Maybe it's a bit tall, windage at the anchorage and all...

    No one here has mentioned the Square Meters: 22 Square Meter, 30 Square Meter etc. Wooden Boat magazine featured the Square Meters several years ago. Then there was the Universal Rule "Q" class. I saw Tageata (sp) many years ago, named for one of the Seven Sisters of mythology and one of the stars in the Pleiades. A real beauty, built in 1930. I wonder if she still exists.

    It’s all covered in grapes and wisteria, now. Boat’s green, now, too.

    Oh, and that plum tree died. Made a bunch of nice spoons, though…

    I thought my boat was skinny @ 4.16:1.

    Paul Rollins built a 50' yawl for his own use that was 5:1. I believe a forumite bought it.

    Not quite as long and lean as some (7.9 x 32.6 ft) but I've always loved the looks of the Aphrodite 101.

    Yep, I thought my boat was "long and lean" but it's only 3.8:1. That's practically "tubby" for this thread!

    But it does have a Displacement/Length ratio in the "ultralight" category, and a SA/Displacement ratio of 24:1, which might make up for it a bit.

    I know there are many who cannot get past their boxy looks. My own father hated them. But I love the International 110

    They took the hard chine concept & applied to to the whole boat - unless you're looking from above. I always thought they were kinda cool. Also amazing that the designer as the same as for the Concordia - Ray Hunt.

    The origin of the Lake Union Duck Dodge in 1974 was a grudge match between a Blanchard Sr. Knockabout and an International 110. The 110 beat me, but not by much.

    Phil Bolger often commented that C Raymond Hunt's designs were a big influence on him, and it's easy to see why.

    I spent a lifetime in skinny boats, brought my kids up sailing on one built 1907, even our modern from 1975 is narrow by todays standards. 45 ft x 12 ft 6.
    But they do always punch above their weight speed wise, just no room inside and you pay the marina managers by the metre .
    We worked out a couple of decades ago we could get two classics in a modern berth but no, says Mr Manager, that would be not right.
    41 ft of 8 ft something.

    Another one, Grahame Shannon's Slingshot 34. I couldn't find much on the net so this is from my stash of designs saved from Cruising World magazine. Some may not like the big vertical stern, but overall I think it's a great looking boat.

    Big vertical transoms put the rudder in a very good place. We even have that vestigal bustle/ skeg arrangement on ours as well, puts a gudgeon right down where it wants to be too.

    I remember taking the ferry from Woods Hole to Nantucket (I hope I remember that correctly) and on the way we passed a 110 sailing along, just the skipper and the boat. It runs a bit contrary to the hull designs I favor, but there is no denying it was lovely as it cut through the waves.

    Ours is 4.4:1. An 8-meter showed up this spring that was the same length, and two feet narrower. (5.6:1)
