Race Committee Boat

I recall reading but cannot find an interesting, on-line article about desirable features in a committee boat. I checked the USSA site and with their staff who assure me that it's not there. I haven't found it Googling. Do any of you know where to find this article?

Re: Race Committee Boat

The whole 'lobster boat' thing seems a pretty good fit.. large cockpit, easy access for mark tenders, room for a proper crew and even a few observers, and somewhere to get out of the weather.

Re: Race Committee Boat

Wow, those are nice.
I don't have a picture of it but years ago our local club had an open deck Bertram about 20' long. It had an electric davit mounted on the back for lifting course markers.
