- May 5, 2009It's Design #373 "Palo D'Agua", likely built in wood (plank on frame), likely by Brad Story. Dimensions are/should be 35'4"x8'6"x2'3"x12,500lbsx459 feet of sail. Deck wouldhave had glass on but not much glass elsewhere, unless someone did the 'unspeakable'. Is ATLAS BOATWORKS the original builder ? If so, we might want to look at some royalties as we know of no agreement... Good to see her.

> Moccasin. Wonder if they built more than one?
The original Moccasin was built in Mallorca, I believe, and at launching had much more elegant paint and trim. Also was not fiberglass. I don't have the book with me to see if it's the same design. Bolger did a number of variations on a similar theme. There was one for Riddle of the Sands territory but that called for a chinese rig.
