Welcome to the forum.....way cool looking boat. I opened the link you posted...Says your boat is a single mast-ed schooner!
I'm sure there are plenty of us that would love to know more about that configuration.
I for one have never heard of that.
What’s the chance of seeing some more pictures...especially the rig.
You mentioned she has 1920s styling...but when was she built?
Once again, welcome!! Neat boat.

Here is the story on the single masted schooner rig. When Merritt was designing the boat, he opted for a traditional stay sail schooner rig. In the process of balancing the sail plan, it became evident that the head sail stays could be extended to the doubling on the main mast and to the top mast, thereby eliminating the fore mast entirely.

By the way, the long bow sprit folds up just fwd of the anchors for crowded marinas.

We especially like the "back porch" feature for the evening drink while at anchor.

She was the last boat built by Rover Marine Lines, inc in 1995.

I have a Beneteau Evasion 34 but I'm working for doing some improvment, I hope the boat will be ready for this spring.

J/92 "Ragtime!"

This could also be in the "smaller is better" thread. A bit more storage and standing headroom would be nice but otherwise she's great. Six years and several thousand miles under her keel, mostly single-handed, including two trips to Kauai:

What a treat to see and learn about everyone's vessels. Seaweed's vessel was really wonderful to see. My brother had a Meadowlark Ketch for years and when I looked at Seaweeds vessel, I wondered what is used on this vessel....centerboard, leeboards? Her draft is minimal...what fun to visit where the water is skinny.

We sail a Cabo Rico 34 cutter, "Tango", Hull #2, designed by Bill Crealock, built in Costa Rica in 1989. She is 34 feet on deck and 37 feet long with bowsprit. After you add dinghy davits and an inflatable, you better get a 45 ft. slip or you will hang out on one end or the other. She is a delight to sail, giving good comfortable motion off shore with her surefooted performance. Thank you, Mr. Crealock.

I also have cedar strip, coldmolded 11 foot Charles Whittholz gaff rigged catboat. Oh, she is cute and fun to sail on lakes and rivers. This was an Ebay purchase that I restored. "Small" is good to do major work on. She was full of rot and was holed to boot. It is a wonder what you can do with West System Epoxy.

I have tried to add pics. here. If not, they are in the monohull picture section.

Cheers,

Leslie

Hey, we had one of those. A 1972. She was a really lousy yellow so we painted her white. Then we could look back at her as we rowed away from our mooring ball. She was fun to sail though. We covered the whole Chesapeake Bay in that boat. For us the ratio of fun to money was oh so right.

Enjoy that Grampian! Over built, an enclosed head and a good quarter berth. Also the V berth was surprisingly large.

There are still a ton of these boats out there. I think there are 4 in our club alone. I guess that is a testament to the quality of the build. I think I read somewhere that they built a thousand of them. I bought mine last year so we are still getting to know each other. I find she is quite forgiving of my lapses and limited sailing ability. I brought her home from Lake Ontario through the Trent system. It was motor all the way with a 9.9 our board. We had some heavy going on some days and I was impressed at how well she handled the rough water. I hope to go farther afield this year as we have some beautiful destinations here on Georgian Bay. If you ever get up this way I would like to meet you and maybe we good get out for a sail.

Here is my new girl "Trust". A 1977 Rawson 30 Pilothouse. The boat I had before this was an Ingrid 38 Ketch. So you can see I traded down in size, not quality...
