Andy Giblin, partner at MP&G Wood Boatbuilding and Yacht Restoration, is heading up the effort to bring owners of these classic designs together at the show. The Buzzards Bay 25 is one of the largest daysailers of the classic boat world, a keel centerboarder known for its powerful, exciting performance on the water. A more modern tool of traditional boatbuilding will be shown by Roger Hambidge, a good hand with a shipwright’s adze, an essential tool in 19th-century New England shipyards.
Homemade tools for boatbuilding are a specialty of Harry Bryan, a New Brunswick boatbuilder, who will pass on his knowledge of metalworking and specific tools he has found most useful in his own inventive techniques. Museum admission, which can be purchased online or at the main entrance, provides access to both the WoodenBoat Show and Mystic Seaport.
Three-day passes are available for purchase online until noon on June 23 on the WoodenBoat Show website.
Additionally, more than 100 vendors will offer items for sale including maritime art, antiques, tools, books, nautical gear, and much more.
Long viewed as a quaintly New England museum, Mystic Seaport redefined itself as The Museum of America and the Sea in the 1990s. After review of its mission and opportunities, Mystic Seaport expands thematic focus to become The Museum of America and the Sea. Completion of plans for the American Maritime Education and Research Center (AMERC) a 150,000-square-foot collections area in the Rossie Mill.
State of Connecticut awards Mystic Seaport and the Connecticut Afro American Historical Society a grant to develop plans for a recreation of the schooner Amistad. Mystic Seaport receives its 10-year re-accreditation from the American Association of Museums, one of only 41 museums nationwide to be accredited three times. Mystic Seaport and several African American organizations in Connecticut incorporate Amistad America, Inc., a nonprofit corporation to plan the construction and operation of the Freedom Schooner Amistad.
March — Mystic Seaport serves as a movie set in scenes from Steven Spielberg’s epic retelling of the Amistad story. June — Roann, one of the last wooden eastern-rig draggers, joins the Museum’s fleet of historic vessels.
8 March — Amistad’s 2-ton, 50-foot keel, made of South American purpleheart, is laid in a moving international celebration signaling the start of construction of the vessel.
New York Yacht Club Station 10 taken to New York Yacht Club’s Newport, RI, facility after 50 years on loan at Mystic Seaport. Most of them look like reasonably complete plans ( I have the originals for the playboy runabout, and its the same thing).


Gosh some of those old free plans look a lot like what some others are selling as their own. I have a few of those old relics, err, boat building magazines around from the '50's (when my Dad and Uncle were boys). This one comes up occasionally so Im sorta wondering Aussie have you been to THE MOTHER yet?
If I had a source for the articles, I'd make them available to anyone who'd want them for the fee of photocopies and mail. I would definitely be interested in a web site in the vain of Svensons that illustrated Rudder. She was heavy for a dinghy and the rig was very unbalanced (although we bought the sails specifically for the boat) and developed a heavy weather helm in stronger wind conditions. I was even caught with all sail set in one of those horrible rain squalls that sweep the Gulf of Paria in the rainy season. I built a MiniMax this summer, but I'm still a bit too chicken-**** to throw a motor on it and go for a spin.
Now, all these years later, I have a 40' sailboat that is poorly served by a miserable rubber inflatable tender.
I have halfheartedly Googled about searching for the plans but I have been handicaped by not remembering which issue or which exact plan it was. So now, the question is: where might I find these plans, or at least an illustration of the dingy that is Topper? They sell bound reprints of a lot of the old DIY magazines boat plans and seem to have all of what svenson shows plus a lot more.
The participating boats will be grouped together at the north end of the Museum and on the New York Yacht Club dock. The original class had only five vessels, four of which are still extant: Mink, Bagatelle, Whitecap, and Vitessa.
On Saturday, Mystic Seaport shipwright Walter Ansel will show how to put together an apparatus for steam-bending wood, and on Sunday how to use tools essential for drawing out a boat’s plans full-sized. Tools used to drive cotton and oakum into planking seams will be demonstrated by Rob Whalen, the project leader on the recent restoration of the Charles W. On Saturday, Brion Rieff, who also runs a Brooklin boatyard, will show how vacuum-bagging has transformed lamination, the layering of thin pieces of wood to achieve the curved shapes so crucial to boat structures. Those interested in the construction of smaller boats can stop by the Family BoatBuilding tent, where families and teams will work to build their own canoe or skiff during the weekend.


The construction of the Freedom Schooner Amistad in the Preservation Shipyard in 1998-2000 was an acclaimed part of this more inclusive mission.

There are loads of designs in those rags and though they have been compiled into an index, doesn't seem to be any source for the articles themselves. Better yet, make them available on line in as good a format as can be reasonably downloaded. It is well worth it due to the time factor (they scanned the pages of the old magazines so you can have some slow downloads). For that we always finished the races we entered, even when half the fleet had capsized underway. Had to keep going upwind to avoid being driven ashore, with the sail slides popping off the luff.
In fact, you should remember that you only get what you pay for - most of these designs were developed very quickly and were published without having a prototype design built. Originally designed for children, the 12 ? has proved a coveted design due to its roomy cockpit, ease of handling, and capable performance. Whitecap, now Aria, another MP&G restoration, can be viewed at the Herreshoff Marine Museum. Also in attendance will be Rogue, the 1950s iteration of the design, built by Seth Persson, and boatbuilder Brion Rieff will bring his 2008 cold-molded version, Iolanthe. Jay, of Anacortes, Washington, served apprenticeships in Norway and the Faroe Islands to learn the building-by-eye techniques of those lands from master craftsmen. I bought a used 1955 Johnson Seahorse 10hp outboard from a neighbor and had a ball zipping around western Long Island Sound for a couple of years.
On Friday, he’ll show how specialized axes are used, and his Saturday demonstration focuses on planes, especially a two-man type favored in Scandinavian boatyards.
