Douglas Fowler, he of the Mystery Sailing Canoe, picked up this interesting half model and has, yet again began the fun part; the research to figure out what this boat is.
The bow sheerline indicates a rough water boat. Douglas thinks a rowboat but I thought most rowboats sport a skeg. The sheerline does remind me of a painting, The Big Dory, by American artist, George Bellows - he of the Ashcan school; though the shape of this half model is definitely not a dory.
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.
