Donn, you of all people are the last one that I would describe as CRS!Love the hat! What kind of a boat is it? (CRS)
Truth be told, there is nothing to remember. As built, this boat has never been seen before. Here's the description:
The plans that I ordered were for a 13 foot long double ender called Tor, drawn up by Charles Strayer. It was a simple open sailboat with a standard jib and main sloop rig.
However, I redrew the plans, expanding the length to 16 feet and the beam to 6 feet. Bulkheads were placed at every other station and floors were built in between them. The original plan boasted a very springy shear. This was flattened a bit as I feared that what looked good at 13 feet, would be comical at 16. The small cabin with hinged top was added for dry storage and the cockpit was been made use of the additional room to seat four extremely comfortably (a good 3 feet per butt.) Lastly the rig is in the process of being changed from a sloop to an unstayed cat-ketch in order to ease rigging and lower the center of effort.
So my question is...What is the best short answer to Donn's question?
In regards to the hat...The love and frustration begins today. We're 14 point favorites over the Broncos of Western Michigan.
