Sorry, I missed your post.

That was a Cowhorn, or at least it was what it said on the picture. I know very little about traditional American boats, but the rig of that one looked like the rig on my first sailboat.

Mine was similar to this one,
but modified by me. It had a big front boom, a deck and I used as front sail a jib and on the boom a thing that was a misture of a genoa and a geenaker (i thought that I had invented the thing ). The boat had a modified keel with lead on the bottom to increase stability and sailing power. It was a powerful boat and a nice one too. Had lot's of fun with it. Lots of good memories

Regards

Paulo
