More About Saraband - Design 1519

A blog reader asked us about the sail area on design #1519, Saraband, a design we posted well over a year ago. It dawned on us that we never posted the sail plan, so here it is. Saraband is a very special double-ender.

While we're at it, here are a few magazine articles about the boat. Please double click for zoom.

  1. Who was the designer/draftsman on the Saraband project?

  2. The designer tasked with generating the preliminary design was a fellow named Roberto J. Hosman. Frank Kinney prepared the Lines Plan and a draftsman named Raymond A. Petry drew the principal inked drawings such as the Sail Plan, General Arrangement and Joiner Sections.
