Re: Why would they do this?

To the OP's question -

The boat for sale is a Naples Sabot which is the popular children's training boat in Southern California. There are also active adult fleets in SoCal.

It is perhaps the best training boat for young children ever devised. About 1/2 of today's rockstars learned to sail on a Naples Sabot.

Children who learn to sail on a Naples Sabot develop a passion for sailing.

Lee boards, mast tabernacle, very "Dutch-looking" lines...I'm thinking "canal cruiser". Very nice.

Now all you need is a couple bottles of Grolsch, a big chunk of Gouda, and a buxom blond to work the foredeck and you're all set.

And don't forget the mandatory Keeshond....And the "Botta's are better" bumper sticker.

Dutch:
That is absolutely beautiful. Stunning!
Could you please send me a can of Amphora ( brown label) pipe tobacco.
They no longer import it here and it was my boyhood smoke of choice.
I miss the memories it brings.

Re: Why would they do this?

I understand why a boat would be designed this way, however to me designing a dinghy this way seems less then ideal, especially if you want to sail in any kind of wind.
