Pelican - Design 289

Pelican

How funky is this boat? I love it. She's a centerboarder and the first boat to be built at the new Jakobson Shipyard when they moved over to Oyster Bay in 1939. The yard had to move from Brooklyn due to eminent domain (the land was seized for construction of a highway).

The fully flush self bailing cockpit is interesting and was probably the cause of the fairly high freeboard. So too was the full standing headroom in the galley area.

Please note the initials on the drawings: R.A.S. for Roderick Stephens, Jr. (draftsman).

  1. What a great looking boat. I could tolerate the Chrysler Building atop my boat if the rest of her deck were flush.
