Header Photo: Aussie Historical 10-Footer - White Knuckes
The classic Aussie 10 footer is the only other class (other than the Classic Moth) to be featured more than once on the header photo. This photo embodies a facet of the sport that is a combination of crazy balls-to-the-wall, close-to-the-edge racing whilst sailing on a beautiful all-wood classic dinghy.
The lines to the Aussie 10 footer are also classic; a deep, roundish hull with enough flotation to accommodate three grown adults and a big rig in a ten foot dinghy.
For reference the waterlines are set at 60 mm, and the buttocks at 125mm. Stations are spaced at 305. 610, 1219, 1829, 2438, 3048 mm. At the transom, the 1/2 width is 689 mm and the max width (not on a station) is 816 mm.

Bald but my eyebrows are growing at a prolific rate. Sailed Windmills and Y-Flyers in the 1960's. Founded Miami University (OH) sailing team. Sailed International 14's and Lasers in the 1970's. Sailed International Canoes in the 1980's to mid 1990's. Sailed Classic Moths since 2002. Enjoy boatbuilding though I'm very, very slow at it (the Internet doesn't help matters). Name in real life: Rod Mincher
After choosing this username (Tweezer is the name of my Classic Moth), further research on the Internet turned up that Tweezerman is a corporate name for a line of pedicure products. Let me emphasize that I do not work for, nor endorse these products.
