20' One Design - Design 256


This interesting design looks a lot like a Lightning but with a fixed keel. The cast iron keel looks like a Scheel keel. Here's the construction plan.


We don't know much about the design. The files are entitled Corinthian 20 Class. It obviously influenced the Lightning as this is design #256 and the Lightning is design #265, designed just half a year later.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 20'-2"
LWL 18'-0"
Beam 6'-4"
Draft 3'-4"

    Love this boat. I wonder what her displacement is? How much ballast does she have? Doesn't look much like a Scheel keel to me... just a relatively early bulb.

  2. The ballast weighs 925lbs and is of cast iron.
