Nice boats to look at, but between the absence of a skeg and the use of jet drive, they don't handle as well as they could.
These are similar (I like the look of the Hinkley's house a bit better though) and have traditional running gear.
One of the most enduring qualities of an old wooden boat is the smell it imparts to your clothing.
I just received a late Christmas gift, a B&W print of this old steel square rigger underway. Apparently my print use to hang in the CO's office at HMCS Naden, it's quite old and was picked up at auction I'm told.
As a general rule, the better it felt when you said it, the more trouble it's going to get you into. I started my truck driving career driving one of these at the local lumberyard, about 1975. I've been wanting to ask about the vertical metal strip on the front cross bars of so many of the vintage cars you post and this pic shows it clearly. And while I'm asking dumb questions, what is the proper word for the header bar connecting the chassis rails forward?
The curved chassis ends are Dumb Irons, the connecting pieces cross members but I've also heard them called walls. The curved chassis ends are 'Dumb Irons', the connecting pieces, 'cross members' but I've also heard them called 'walls'.
Still no guess about the bracket I'm referring to on the round bar connecting the chassis rails at the front? So, you get a sporty car to pick up chicks, you take an alluring female off to the old lover's lane, and then, how do you neck if you're each under a different canopy? I think the model in the middle is for courting, the twin-bubble version is for after you're married. It's pretty well known that Jaguar were a bit optomistic with both horsepower and top speeds with some of their cars.
I had seen those photos on this thread, where it was a little unclear if he was talking about the one-design or the later boats, but your attribution makes sense.
When the Yacht Club called one of their regularly scheduled races in 1896, and with a minimum of preparation, Johnson entered his new design. As so often happens, the term of derision became a badge of honor once the boat turned out to be a world-beater. If scows were doing some spirited racing 40 years before this, that would have been in the 1850s. The article makes it very clear that the scows such as Question were at their best in strong winds. The stern seems to resemble the spritsail boat that started this whole conversation, but the bow was long and overhanging. The author informs us there were about a hundred half-raters built at the time the article was written. The thing I love about this thread is finding out about thriving racing scenes with huge advances that I'd never heard of before. I think the boats in post 300 are development-class Patikis, which are quite different to the Patiki one design. The earliest record that sounds like a modern description of planing was the Oxford Canoe yawls of (I think) 1892, slightly earlier than those mentioned here IIRC.
All the research I did started me thinking that the issue had to be that earlier boats had planed, but not to the same extent as boats after Avenger.


The Aberdare type 18, already mentioned, planes sort of like an Etchell in my very limited experience, but Aberdare does it under the press of several times an Eggshell's rig. While it's common to blame the death of radical boats like Sandbaggers on conservatives, now that newspapers are available on line it's becoming apparent that there was a shocking death toll in NY and in the similar Aussie boats - not so much in Sydney where rescue was at hand, but in the wider waters of Brisbane. From reading that link, I get the impression boats were planing in Oxford competition at least three years before Shadow was built. So, I think we can say the earliest boats to be deliberately designed to exploit planing under sail that we've confirmed are the Oxford sailing canoes of the late 1880s. As for the sandbaggers, remember, even one of modest size could involve shifting more than 1,000 lb.
Backbreaking work does not fit will with the concept of pleasure sailing, and the Corinthian movement attempted to reduce the cost of sailing by making it so you didn't have to have a large paid crew.
I've been searching for a lines drawing of the Logan Brothers Patiki-class racer so far without success.
It's in the Auckland Public Library, I reckon, and probably in the Turnbull Collection in Wellington.
Tom McKnight had a long involvement with Auckland Regatta organization and clearly remembered a 1909 Logan Patiki, the 27 foot Maroondah taking the gun ahead of formerly unbeatable A Class keeler Ariki one windy Anniversary day.
The Napier Patiki had an elegant appearance with a fine bow, low freeboard, hard turning bilges and planing after sections.
With their large size and extreme rigs, Napier Patikis were expensive to build and maintain.
Edited to add: It looks to me from what post #29 on your link says, that picture is not the 18' patiki class, but a Logan half-rater patiki, which it strikes me might or might not be the class in question.
I'd say buy it new so the authors make a bit of money, but youll be lucky to find one from a supplier.

The E type was sold as 265 hp and a 150 mph car but that was 'special' demonstrator type units. Drove it across the country in the summer of '67 and abandoned it on Filmore and Bay in San Francisco two years later.
I was lucky enough to talk to the late Geoff Smale, winner of the Prince of Wales Cup in INt 14s in the '50s for New Zealand and an experienced sailor of the older Kiwi boats. And it may overplay the idea that there was unfair opposition to light boats from conservatives; while it implies that criticism of hiking was just conservatism, for example, sources of the time point out that in those days of cotton sails, poor buoyancy tanks, a lack of rescue boats and cumbersome clothes, there was actually considerable danger involved in driving too hard. There is a clear and direct line of influence between the sandbagger Truant and boats that were sent from the UK to Australia, although I can't find explicit information on the way they influenced local boats once they arrived.
There are some terrible tales of crews dieing lingering deaths after capsizes on such boats and only the most callous would not have thought that they could be banned. The account I've excerpted was published in Forest & Stream, the leading yachting magazine of the day, so I'd guess the information traveled widely. I'm sure safety was a factor as well, but making the sport more gentlemanly was part of the concept as well.
The design was actually too far ahead of its time for its own good and was considered by critics as a skimming fool. But the ease in which unballasted designs won races was too much for the yachting officials of the time and bad feelings arose between the ballasted and unbalanced factions. Jack became a household name in New Zealand winning over a number of years in his unbeatable, radical, scow-like 18 footer Kotuku. The design was refined and planed easily downwind under its hollow spars in a gaff rigged mainsail, boom footed jib plus a spinnaker.


Only a few survived in original condition after the Depression years and many Napier boats were damaged during the 1931 earthquake – when the Ahuriri Lagoon drained and became filled with debris.
Gary Baigent's book, Light Brigade: The New Zealand School of Yacht Design is available on Scribd. Of course, so many drive a truck to drive a truck, without any actual towing, hauling, or offroad needs. When they were making their speed runs they found that the car could not quite nudge the 150 but only by a couple of MPH.
Johnson brought his design to the starting line in 1896, his friends derided it as looking like a scow. People like Nicholson (I think) also wrote about planing in cat-rigged dinghies similar to International 12s, around WW1.
He said that the Kiwi boats (like Aberdare-type 18s etc) did plane, but only in a big breeze and downwind.
Many clubs banned shifting ballast because it was backbreaking work, and if no one had it, there would be no competitive disadvantage in not having it.
Like the Mullet boat the Patiki owed something to the US wide, shallow hulled Sandbagger and also to Dixon-Kemp’s rating boats. The Auckland media took the committee view and sycophantically printed that Patikis spoiled competition; this created an angry reaction to the unballasted boat crews which resulted in them being ostracized from race clubs. These were not local designs either but imports from Auckland, the first being the 22 foot clinker hull Edith, built by Bailey & Lowe. Sail area was large, sometimes extreme for the lightweight hull and the Patiki relied on wide beam, crew stacked to weather plus very light displacement to accelerate away from gusts and stay upright. After that catastrophe the remaining examples were forced to sail in the open sea, where large Pacific rollers played havoc with their light construction. Francis Herreshoff poo-pooed the idea that Avenger was the first planing dinghy and years later even Uffa said that his dinghies didn't really plane!
The US inspired or imported Maka Maili made a big impression on the Manukau Harbour and Ray Grant remembered his father John Grant being thought very far fetched when he tried to describe his experiences aboard this 28 foot centreboarder.
The favoured classes were the heavier Mullet boats: 20 to 26 foot lengths and this left no room for the spectacular Patikis and Rater boats like Aoma, Bellbird, Mercia and Doreen. Even though the transom rudder was shifted under hull to stop ventilation (first with Maroro in 1906) it was too small for control in hard reaching conditions; then the crew could only keep on course by constant trimming of the sails. Crews related that they could see the movement of the waves rolling along the insides of the hulls – and so many Patiki backbones were broken, like the meticulously maintained Veronique which was too damaged to be repaired, and so was burnt. Frequent fisticuffs, boardings, disregard of right of way and blatant cheating was the rule. John Grant first stepped aboard Maka Maili when he was 10 years old as bailer boy and was on the boat when it famously planed at a 13 knot average from Waikowhai to Onehunga Wharf. So two rudders were fitted on some boats under each bilge to counter this problem – a practical solution and something the US lake scows of the same period also had in common. It's said that pies were the favorite meal taken aboard, so that afterwards, the crew could silently paddle with the pie plates on the hidden side.
