wow, 62' with tiller steering. That will raise a few eyebrows. (And if anyone on this forum had predicted that the day would come when Bob Perry designs bulb keels, I'd have been shaking my head.)

I like the lines; it's distinctively Perry from the waterline up. If you need someone to help field-test the prototype....

(And I wish I had the scratch to order one. I'd insist you design some kayak racks forward of the mast, and a system to handle the solar panels.)

The boat is a daysailer with a minimal interior. It wil be strip planked at the NW Wooden Boatbuilding School in Hadlock WA. Work is underway now for the new buiding designed to fit the boat.

I have actually done quite a few bulb keels. In this case without any beam to speak of I have to get the VCG down some way.

Here is a better look at the deck.

Is a 28' sailboat with a 9'6" beam considered "beamy"? My 1978 Ranger TR is that, and it has won many races with it's faired keel, excellent selection of kites and it's beam. The former owner said when a gust comes, it doesn't keel over like most boats do. It just goes faster.

Yes, your boat has a L/b of 2.94 and anything under 3.00 could be considered beamy. Anything over 4.00 can be considered narrow.

But the former owner is BS'ing you. Your boat is a normal boat ,assuming it's a monohull. I do not know the Ranger 28TR. Any boat hit by a gust, even the biggest, widest catmaran will react to the gust and heel over to some degree. And the word is "heel" not "keel over".

"Keel over" is what you do when you are drunk.

If in fact your boat is a Gary Mull designed Ranger 28 it is an old IOR boat and they were famous for being initially tender and heeling very quickly. Ijn fact due to the IOR they werer designed to be initially tender to gain an advantagious CGF which was a direct multiplier of 'L".

Beautiful. And that explains how you were able to keep the displacement down around 17K.

A 62' daysailer! Sheesh. But yes, it makes sense to design it narrow if all the owners are going to do is have fun in it. Still, a boat without solar panels....

I'm teasing, of course, about the panels. I keep my boat two slips over from an amazing one-off schooner you designed recently, a schooner with all-carbon spars. The envy runs deep in this marina.

"Oh. Bob Perry didn't design a boat just for you? How unfortunate."

Thanks for the kind words You must mean the schooner JAKATAN. I heard a rumor that it's not quite so popoular in the traditional schooner crowd though.

perry designs are traditionally nontraditional with a particularly unique and individual flair-- very lovely boats--even the ones with a "too modern" look.....very sweet lines.

had to wipe a lot of drool of ff my chin from the sight of the schooner...

When is that going to happen....the wooden boat school is just down the road from me...I'm in Port Townsend (actually the last two owners of my boat had alot to do with the school)

yep, that's my neighbor. If she's unpopular, it's probably because of how she cleans up at the Great San Francisco Schooner Race.

I understand that it's not just the masts, boom and gaffs that are made of carbon fiber, but the bowsprit and davits as well.

I've been wanting to she how she points as compared to my beamy ol sloop, but every time I see her out on the bay, she's headed the wrong way.

I think she's a foter and not pointer. Goes with the rig.

Bowsprit is timber. Davits are carbon.
