Finally updating my site do pretty girls use dating sites
I realize this is blasphemy to True Believers of Herreshoff, but it's my boat. I would like the after compartment to be watertight enough to serve as flotation in the event of a capsize, so I'm thinking of running copper tubes straight through from the transom to the bulkhead for the steering lines to pass through.
The Alpha is a 21'racing design that dates to around 1900 built by a Marblehead native (not a yachtsman) Chamberlain used the traditional rudder yoke and steering lines that had been used at Marblehead and Beverly since memory, interesting that the coquina uses lines as well.
The Alpha also has two sails in comon with the Coquina though there carried in a Leg-O-Mutton/sloop rig on a single mast.
I have a bunch of build photos on my website, will we see you at SRR 2009?

Up front it is a little tricky I worry about the aesthetics of a tank or tanks under the thwart.
