by Roland Cueva

Owners of small cruising boats, sail or power, in the eighteen to twenty-five foot class, will find this little 8-ft. plywood pram the answer to their ship-to-shore and towing problems. Torp, as the original was named, was designed specifically as a tender to the 18-ft. auxiliary sloop Bonnie. A craft the size of Bonnie obviously could not tow a heavy rowboat on cruises, and lacked the deck space for storing a dinghy aboard. A very light, easily towed tender was needed; one that would be small enough to appear in proper proportion to Bonnie when trailing astern, yet would be capable of shuttling three, or even four persons in a pinch, from shore to the mooring.
