Design 172 - Nugget

We've made mention of Nugget in previous postings about two designs that were developed from her: Temperance, design #387 and the Mar-Casado Class of boats, design #696. I think she's special enough to mention her again. Temperance was built by the Kretzer Boat Works of City Island, New York and launched in 1936. She was later renamed Viking.

Here are the plans. Some of the plans are in pretty rough condition, but here they are nonetheless.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 33'-4"
LWL 26'-0"
Beam 10'-1"
Draft 5'-0"
Displacement 14,700 lbs
Ballast 6,000 lbs
Sail Area 510 sq ft

    Looks somewhat Scandinavian, and rather like a Folkboat, only designed some six years before the Folkboat. You've got to love this boat. What a great bow; it balances her transom and outboard rudder so sweetly. Then there's her sheer, which starts right where it belongs, way aft, about at the aft end of her cabin trunk. I also love the fact that the house terminates aft of the mast. Sweet.
