New Boat School Project Starts This Spring

Here are some early drawings of the Bob Perry designed 62′ daysailer that will be built in the new Jeff Hammond Boat Shed at the NW School of Wooden Boat Building. The boat’s name is SLIVER and with a LOA of 62′ and a beam of 9.8″, she is indeed a sliver. In profile her topsides and house are reminiscent of local favorite SPARKLE, but her rig, underwater lines and foils are very different. Very cool and looks very fast. No doubt the Boat School will do a great job building her.

More line drawings after the break.

The revised sail plan seems to show a little less roach on the main.

    Tim Nolan, Jim Franken, Brandon Davis and Russell Brown are all very involved in the project along with Bruce Blatchley and all of the other great people at the School. It is a great team that has assembled and Bob Perry and I are very happy to be working with these people on this vessel.

    Kim, what a great team and what an exciting boat. We really look forward to following the build and can’t wait to see her out sailing on the Bay.
