More About Primrose - Design 167

As a follow up to my posting of Monday regarding Primrose, the owner was kind enough to send us some nice images, which you can see posted here.

Primrose Detail

At Anchor

Notice how nicely designed this boat is. At anchor she is just slightly bow down so with people in the cockpit she will float on an even keel. Nice.

Sailing in Detail

According to her owner: "The boat sails well in all conditions with no weather helm and out sails a Herreshoff 12 1/2 on all points but dead down wind where they are about even".

He also sent this copy of an old newspaper advertisement about the boat. This ad looks fairly home made: typed on a typewriter and the rest hand lettered.

Thank you again for sending this material. This is a very special boat.
