6 Meter Whaler
From Bob Dalziel in the Pacific Northwest, four
views of his John Welsford designed 6M
Whaler in frame.
Bob is going to rig her as a sloop or cutter, and although he
has not chosen the final rig yet has moved the mainmast step
aft to put the centres in the right place for a single masted
rig which John Welsford will draw up for him. He is also not
fitting the motor well, preferring to use an outboard mount
instead of "cutting a hole in the bottom".
We thought that although there is quite a way
to go that the lovely shape of this 19 ft 6in double ender is
clear enough to be worth showing off.
