Design 909 - Manatuck

This nice looking sloop was designed and built by the Casey Boat Building Company of Fairhaven, Massachusetts. She was launched in 1940. Not one of our designs, she is listed as design S&S 909. We were hired only to design a new rig, which you see here and to try to correct ventilation problems. If I had to guess I would imagine some Dorade vents were added.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 31'-0"
LWL 25'-6"
Beam 10'-6"
Draft 4'-6"
Sail Area 728 sq ft

    Thirty-one feet? I don't THINK so. Don't you mean forty-one feet?

  2. That's what our index card file tells me, and that's all I have to go by for this design.

    See above - I have posted the index card.

  3. 728 sq. ft. of sail area on a 31 ft. boat? I bet she was a light air flyer! The boat in the picture looks more likely to be 31ft on the waterline.
