The thread about double enders got me thinking about this boat. My dad had one when I was a teen and we spent many days sailing her out of Wynchmere harbor on Cape Cod. Sweet little Ted Brewer designed canoe yawl. Anyone else had any experience with this real pocket cruiser?

That's got to be the smallest yawl I've ever seen. Very salty looking though. How'd she sail?

Very sweet. The yawl rig was a sop to traditionalist like my dad I think. Sure it balanced her out and made it easy to reduce sail, but on a boat that size, how hard is it anyway? It was fun and easy to sail. No racer, thats for sure.

I should add that all the fittings were bronze. My dad loved that, he was a real old-timey sailor.

Ted Brewer also designed the Nimble canoe stern line of boats. I had the Arctic 25 Pilothouse Sloop. The mizzen mast was optional and I didn't have it. I think the Nimble line followed your dad's as they had the same color scheme and bronze ports etc... The non-pilothouse version of mine looked almost identical to your dads.... same hull, just different from the deck up.

And a neat little Honda 7 hp ( I think) tucked away in the lazarette. Fun little boats. Stan, I didn't know there were others in the family with this boat. Any pics? The pilot house on this size boat must have been cute too.
