Re: Does the gaff rigged, double ender Tancook 30 exist??
A quick correction, Peter Van Dine spells his name with an "i" and not a 'y' as above. Peter apparently passed on in 2010. He apparently did several designs based on the Tancook Whalers but the one that I knew best was roughly 26 Feet on deck with an overall length (bowsprit to rudder head) around 30 feet. Peter was from Annapolis and his designs can be found on the web. One of Van Dine's Tancook designs is on the cover of Roger Taylor's books "The Fourth Book of Good Boats".
Ralph Wiley, from Oxford, Maryland also designed a number of Tancook Whaler influenced designs, I seem to recall seeing one of the more authentic of those in this general size.
