by Edward Webber

This boat, designed and built approximately two years ago, gave her owner such keen sailing and all-around enjoyment that another was built. Both have raced and sailed the entire season, in rivers, small lakes, Raritan Bay, and Barnegat Bay, and the boating pleasure derived from them has greatly eclipsed the original cost and labor. The construction is simple and the completed boat should not cost much, depending on the locality and materials used. As to materials, I recommend a solid piece of white oak for the keel and, for all other parts, I think it best to allow the builder his own choice. Very little strain or twisting will be found in such a small hull, and the materials used can depend on the pocketbook.
