Whitehall Style Livery Model


This lapstrake Whitehall-style pulling boat demonstrates several short cuts that made her quick to build, including her garboard, keel, keel-batten construc­tion, and her full-width, bent flat frames. With the demands from boat liveries and from yachtsmen needing tenders, boat­ builders developed these faster ways to build around 1900.  However, construction shortcuts are not evidenced in the elegant shape of this boat. She is narrower and much lighter (135 pounds) than the slightly shorter Boston Whitehall on the next page. She has a nice, highly tucked transom and a bit of rake in the stem. Like most of these shorter boats, she is set to pull with one, who could carry one or two passengers.  From 87 Boat Designs by Ben Fuller.  Plans drawn in 1974.
