Re: Why a ketch?

bob--i agre withthat--the sloop i was taught to sail as a kid was , when i was small, reported to have been built by herreschoff yard--when i was grown, i learned differently--was designed by clifton crane and built in a yard somewhere in new england.
would be great to actually KNOW who truly DID design garden ketches--and to let the leaky teaky garden ketch/ leaky teaky yacht club know the results--what year was the first one drawn and built?? which yards were used then, and the evolving history of yard usage...mine was built by formosa boat builders...many yards were used and are a few minor differences of no significance added to some. is of great interest to the group.
