Plans for a famous 17-foot auxiliary sloop that crossed the Pacific

by Capt. Charles Borden

"Seventeen feet long with a six foot beam, "Confucius" is a Marconi rig sloop built entirely of teak, camphor wood and bagac, in Hong Kong, China, where these woods were very cheap. For two years my wife, Rosalie and I sailed about the Pacific in Confucius during which time it was our only home; we cruised over 7,000 sea miles. Fast in light winds and capable in any weather we found Confucius to be a safe and comfortable little cruiser at all times."--Capt. Borden
