Point Jude 16 Information
I am looking for any information, manuals, history, drawings, photos, etc. on the Point Jude 16 daysailer. Please feel free to post any information or materials to this thread.
I own a 1989 manufactured by Starwing.
I have posted some information from various online sources below.
This beautiful daysailer was designed in 1946 by Edson Scholk and over 1,200 boats were built. Clearly, this boat was intended with stability, safety and comfort in mind. Dinghy racing was not on the designer's mind. The 525 lbs hull should keep the 136 sq.ft. sailplan well behaved and stable.
Many well-loved and maintained used boats appear to be available at very reasonable prices. The chined hull will make for relatively flat and dry sailing.
Draft 8" board up, 34 board down
Sail area 136 sqft (main 100 sqft, jib 36 sqft) traditional tanbark color preferred
Displacement 525 lbs
Mast height 23'7"
25 cubic feet of lockable storage
mahogany kickup rudder, traditional laminate tiller
kickup weighted centerboard
teak splashrail around cockpit
teak rub rail
teak laminate hatch covers (two fore, one aft)
removable motor mount
