      AS far as I know Loose Moose is an extended Jessie Cooper which originally was a bolger design.  They changed her some with Schooner rig lee-boards and likely some other changes.  I would guess that neither would have been Mr. Bolgers preferd set up.  Maybe someone else designed those features????               Doug

      I don't know for definite, but my guess would be that both designers were asked to design a boat to the same specification, and the Wise's built the one they preferred.

      Does anyone know why two designers both claim to have designed the boat? I seems, from published pictures, that the design the Wise's built was the Bolger design.
