Excerpt from Small Yacht Construction and Rigging: Illustrated by Two Complete Designs and Numerous Diagrams and Details
The first type will be the easier for the beginner to tackle, owing to the simpler form of the keel and sections, and also because the weights Of the various parts are much less, in pro portion to the size of the boat.
Under this head will come the 22 ft. C.b. Sailing boat (design no. I), which will be the best to start with, as she has far less work in her than boats of the other type. She will make a good, useful sailing boat, either for the coast or river, and can also be used as a yacht's sailing cutter, if the deck be omitted.
