Re: Info on Trump 25 (Margaret D)?

I considered buying a Margaret D bare hull way back in the late 70s. Aborne Smith actually entered his Margaret D in the First Bermuda 1-2 solo race in 1977. The only details I have is he did not finish but instead turned back. Classy pleasing little boat but I agree the ketch rig is a bit much for a 25 footer.

Re: Info on Trump 25 (Margaret D)?

I bought one of the first Margaret D Ketch when I was 21 years old, They were being built by Aborne Smith at that time, I think it was in 1976 that the design was bought by New England Boat Builders, I remember that because I took out the owners of New England Boat Builders out for a test sail on my boat as it was moored right in Mattoposett near their yard. I guess they were impressed by the sailing qualities because they bought the design. It was a great boat, I did a lot of solo sailing and having the four sails gave me so many possibilities, The last year I had the boat my inboard was not running, on returning to the harbor with all four sails up I would run around on deck dropping sails and the boat held it course beautifully with nobody at the helm. I never sailed in anything the boat could not handle and I went out in any weather. Like I said it was a great boat and I have many great memories of sailing her.

I believe that Mr. Smith did not finish the race was that he became seriously ill during the race
