Customer Request - Comparison of Revonoc/Theodora to Loon

Revonoc

We received the following request from one of our blog followers: May I suggest a design comparison (including polar plots) of Revonoc/Theodora with Loon, the design done for Dr. Pinchot?

We can't provide the polars as we just simply haven't run VPPs on these two boats but here is a brief comparison:Revonoc/Theodora (Design #602) versus Loon (Design #1623).
Year 1945 versus 1961
LOA 45'-3 1/2" versus 45'-5 1/2"
LWL 32'-0" versus 30'-3 1/8"
Beam 12'-0" versus 11'-0"
Draft 4'-4 3/4" versus 6'-5"
Note Revonoc with centerboard down 7'-2 1/2" draft
Displacement 25,100 lbs versus 25,000 lbs
Construction material: wood versus aluminum

Although at first blush there are certainly similarities in the profile of the boats, the most significant difference is centerboard versus fixed keel.
