- Sep 1, 2000Thanks, John, for posting the body plan of your boat. That's
a very interesting development in the growth of Bolger's work.
I see now a distinction ought to be made between 'sponsons',
a la Gloucester Yawl and ( here I'm guessing ) the revised
Martha Jane and, on the other hand, the motorboat 'steps'.
Though all have a dogleg in the body, the sponsons are up
high, the steps, like yours, down low.
The rest are in the Square Boat genre. Yours is also unique
in that the main body has flare. Another theme exemplified
in Antispray is the Bolger disregard for the classic
aversion to windage!
You haven't mentioned how far along you are in construction,
but many here will be interested in how it all works out.
