Temperance - Design 387

This is one of the designs we just don't have a picture of. It's really too bad as she is a nice looking boat. Temperance was built by the Kretzer Boat Works of City Island, New York and launched in 1941. I like the stern hung rudder.

Here's the general arrangement plan.

I have included this masthead detail only in that it's a nice detailed drawing by Rod Stephens.

The design utilizes the same exact Lines Plan as design #172, Nugget, launched in '36. I have included the Lines Plan here as it is an extremely rare example of a set of lines developed by Rod Stephens.

And an article from Yachting magazine.

Incidentally we did find a couple of images of design #172, Nugget. Here they are.

This boat was also built by Kretzer. The only real changes I can see between the boats is the general arrangement (and the propeller on Temperance being on centerline and in an aperture). Here's the general arrangement for Nugget.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 33'-4"
LWL 26'-0"
Beam 10'-1"
Draft 5'-0"
Displacement 14,700 lbs
Ballast 5,660 lbs
Sail Area 503 sq ft

  1. When I was a high school boy in the 50's, I believe that either Nugget or Temperance was in the Chicago area. At any rate, a boat which looks a lot like these was in the Chicago-Waukegan race one year and made a vivid impression on me. Sixty odd years on, I still remember her as being one of the prettier boats in the fleet.
