    Now that could be classed as a yacht if it had sails!

    Angus, 1930 steel burger, kahlenberg diesel is still in it. summered,for ever, at jackson harbor, washington island, wis. the colonel owned it. visited him every summer. the isl ferry boat captains would drive it for him as needed. the nu 3 cylinder was always a problem. it was designed to have a hired man ride in the engine room at all times to tickle the engine as directed by a telegraph. originally it had a 60 gallon oil tank that supplied the lube. there is no case on the engine. the oil fell into the bilge and was then pumped overboard. the C.G. used them too back then. it now has a collector pan for recycling.
    the colonel passed and the boat went to beaver isl. saw it heading out for an evening cruise last september. the nu 3 cylinder was smoking allot as angus slid by. to start a kahlenberg you spin the engine then by hand stick a blow torch in this tube to ignite one cylinder at a time. they are very reliable engines

    The things we used to do. I remember the city pouring used engine oil on dirt roads when I was young. Times have changed!

    While I can't get a good look at the bow in this picture, the Christ Church Sailing Club called them scows. I'm not seeing it.
    Here's what they had to say about these sweet looking little boats.
    "Christchurch Sailing Club has a large and active fleet of Scows numbering well over fifty boats, most of which can be seen on the Club hard in the summer. The 11 foot long Scow originated in the 1920s as a sailing tender for larger cruising yachts, but over the years, has become popular as a single-handed sheltered water racing dinghy. The rig is a single balanced lug, with the mast and spars designed to fit within the length of the boat. There are many slight variations of the basic design in the Solent area and beyond, the Club's variant being the Avon Scow. All the dinghies are essentially one-design, but the GRP hulls in the Club clearly come from more than one mould. The Club owns one such mould, from which construction lines have been taken."
    Another view of the Avon Scow from another source:[​IMG]

    If only they could frak old roads. I'm sure there is loads of oil sitting in the ground just under all those old road surfaces.

    Looks like an Alerion Express 28! https://binged.it/2v7hjFe
    I bet the resemblance doesn't extend to the bottom. The Alerion looks like a J 80 below the waterline.

    It's the "out of sign out of mind" shortsightedness that worries me. Whether we pollute the groundwater, the ocean, the sky -- it doesn't just disappear or end there.
