"No reverse sheer either which is highly practical - still a handsome craft, but I'd take 5 or 6 fully restored Atalantas for the same price. "

Fairey Mary replied to Timothy Mallette's discussion Offset Plans & Lofting
"Is it worth super-imposing this over the blueprints? They should provide a reasonable sanity check. Can these measurements be used for modelling drag etc.  See the blog on "How fast can we make an Atalanta"."

Welcome to the Atalanta Owners Association!

 

I can see from the photos that you are working hard to restore Blue Goose. It really will be worth all that work - she will be very satisfying to sail!
