  • Retreat always comes to mind when the pressures of life weigh heavy on one's shoulders. Kids, job and cold winter weather got me dreaming about what Retreat has to offer. Roger Taylor's "Thirty Classic Boat Designs" has a chapter on Retreat in which he mentions that Harlan & Anna Hubbard spent 7 years on their boat traveling from Brent, Ky down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. Two...

  • Capt. Cicero is in Vol. 33 of the Ideal series. She is listed as design # 707. Tern is also in Vol. 33. Tern is quite similar in profile with the exception of a low gaff rig. Tern is a wider, shallow draft CB'er with a bit more sail area and a bit less weight. --- In AtkinBoats@^$1, "John Kohnen" wrote: > > I don't have the plan number or date for Captain Cicero, but she was...

  • Jabberwock is in the Ideal Boat Series vol. 33. A beautiful design in either power or sail form. I toyed with the idea of building one in strip or cold molded wood. As you suggested a gaff rig would be more "trailer friendly" than original mast which towers almost 35' off the deck. Displacement is a bit much to trailer. as designed: frames: 3/4" x 7/8" W.Oak, 9" on center planking...

  • I have owned a couple of boats with wood masts/internal halyards. Other than being "visually cleaner", I found no advantages over external halyards. An internal jam or twist will be an event to remember. At least one of my masts had a compression tube between the spreaders, just like aluminum masts. Built-up wood masts weren't rocket science, just the "norm" at one time. Most...

  • Wayne Gretchen is in Ideal series Vol.33. She has 600# of internal ballast placed under the bunks and floorboards. Gretchen certainly has a beautiful set of lines especialy for an 18 ft. cabin boat. In addition to Helga and the Onion/Oats series, check out the Nanny Gay and the slightly larger Sharpeshooter, Dolly Varden, Economy Jane all of which are in Vol 33.

  • Comparing the "table of offsets" of the two boats (both are in Ideal series vol. 33) they are virtually identical dimensions with just a station spacing change. Ben does have a longer keel casting by a few inches at each end and a slightly larger rudder which is probably a scaled enlargement. Ballast in EJ is 600 outside, 400 inside, Ben is 750/500.

  • Some time ago I did a Google search on "The Maid of Endor" and found a short article (with photos) on a completed boat on the web site of what apparentely is a European sailing magazine. I downloaded the photos, which were not the best quality, just for future reference. I kept the link but the page is no longer available. The original link was: http://www.val-navtika.net/val43...
