William Atkins - Maybe Tally Ho design.

Hess's BCCs were a variation on the olde Bristol Pilot Cutter. There was no rigid spec for a BPC although they all had relatively straight stems and a long full keel. Usually wine glass stern but not always as bluff as the Hess type. Often had a few feet of overhang at the stern.

Indeed, this is a Cape George 31, which was derived (by Carl Chamberlain) from Atkin's Tally Ho. I give it to TDW. By the way, Cape George now builds the BCC and FCC.

http://www.capegeorgecutters.com/

"Tally Ho! is 30 ft. l.o.a., 28 ft. l. w. l., 9 ft. beam, 5 ft. 6 in. draft. Her sail area is 672 sq. ft. There is 6,600 Ib. of iron in her keel, with 2,000 Ib. of cement ballast inside and 1,000 Ib. of lead for trimming. The yacht's displacement is 20,800 lb."



I think if you examine Hess's BCC you'll see that it is very similar to Atkin's Fore N Aft:

"Fore An' Aft is 28 feet 8 inches in over all length, has a water line length of 27 feet, a breadth of 9 feet 6 inches, and a draft of 5 feet 2 1/2 inches. Her displacement, loaded for a cruise, is 19,200 lbs. Light displacement (2 in. above L.W.L.) is 16,900 lbs."

TDW, We must be kindred spirits when it comes to our boat predilections. I consider the Cape George 34 to be one of the most handsome boats afloat. It's another Chamberlain derivation of an Atkin design, this time Tally Ho Major.

About 10 years ago I came THIS close to purchasing a partially completed CG31 hull and deck kit. Probably a good thing it didn't work out -- I'd likely still be building it and I've really enjoyed this past decade of sailing!

Sorry for delay. I was looking for something else but couldn't find it.

Boy, that's a powerful rig.

Just to get the ball rolling, I'm going to continue the Atkin theme and say it reminds me of his 32' Eric and Thistle designs (aka Westsail 32).
