Re: [AtkinBoats] re Dragon class
- The Dragon design was written up in Billy Atkin's book, Of Yachts and Men
(available from Mrs. Atkin). She's a deeper, cutter-rigged variation of
Eric. It's a bit misleading to call the design the "Dragon class" because
it was never intended for racing and there's a popular racing keelboat
class called the International Dragon.
I'm sure Peter's Dragon is a great looking boat and I look forward to
seeing pictures of it.

In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be
thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican.
