Design 708 - Rascal and Easterly


Here we have an example of two boats of the same design built by two competent builders. Rascal was built by Henry Nevins of City Island. The principal plans were penned by the very talented Al Mason. She was launched in 1947.

Fast forward 14 years and we have Easterly being built and launched by Seth Persson of old Saybrook, Connecticut in 1961.

The following article tells a good story. Please double click for zoom.
