“I did not know the center of effort in her sails, except as it hit me in practice at sea, nor did I care a rope yarn about it. Mathematical calculations however are all right in a good boat, and Spray could have stood them. She was easily balanced and easily kept in trim.” With these words Captain Joshua Slocum dismisses the technique of Spray’s design. Considering the unparalleled performances of this little boat, it is remarkable that no one has attempted an analysis of her lines and sail plan.
