Herreshoff designed some of the prettiest sailboats. The H28, originally in timber, was built in NZ in f/g as the Walker H28, in sloop and ketch form, with long cruising keel and transom/keel hung rudder. He could have designed the Folkboat, but that fell to Tord Sunden in 1942, in Sweden. Methinks after a sideways glance at a Herreshoff design.

Delfin,
That looks like the boat that comes to Craig every year.

TAD,
Yes I suspected the light displacement but the 16hp largely led me there. I can see why she was claimed to be the most efficient possible. What a boat, of course not for everybody, perhaps not even anybody but to watch her slide along was probably better than good music.

Then it is the boat I saw in Craig?
I remember her as having a dark blue hull .. not black.

Set to Rest:

Tucked away in SF Delta. I'd say End O' Da Road! Once quite proud I'm sure. Hidden on other side of these is a Big old woody, rot well displayed; saw it by boat mid last summer. Siamese cat in window of cruiser with gang plank to old dock landing. Hired caretaker... or... squatter??

Thanks Tad - Both boat's exterior apparatus looks well past prime... to say the least. Think either will be resurrected? I have my doubts. Cheers! - Art

The Aurora blog appears to have gone quiet in 2012, so don't get your hopes up.

If one is seriously hankering after a big boat, this one may well be a better bet.

1936 12 - Pack Charter Vessel Adventure/Research Vessel Power Boat For Sale

The Robert Gray is seen in the Aurora blog towing her, and may currently be tied outside the Buoy Tender. This seems to substantiate the rule that all big boats are forever for sale.....The wooden vessel tied outside Aurora looks like a Canadian Minesweeper?

If your comment was referring to the 88' North Sea trawler in the photo that I just posted I'll tell you that, from the photos I saw when she was listed for sale on YW, she was certainly outfitted to be a comfortable boat. FYI - The trawler had been retrofitted for use as a charter vessel and was equipped with all the creature comforts.

If on the outside chance your comment was directed towards the photo of the Diesel Duck you posted within your comment, well, all I can say is that I couldn't disagree with you more.

The comment was on the NST, looking at the size and number of windows the interior looks very dark.

Relax, not picking on your boat, just posting a photo of it.

Smaller windows are better for open-sea voyages.

Yup, no windows would even be better when out in the North Sea.
