About this Sailboat:
An excellent review of the Rozinante design and sailing qualities was published by Roger Taylor in his Fourth Book of Good Boats. Another review was published in the Sept/Oct 2006 Wooden Boat Magazine entitled A Quartet of Exceptional Ketches.
With the exception of the stronger keel bolting specification described in an available detailed inventory, this recent model is a splendid Rozinante, very true to the original plans and specifications.
Hull construction is cedar planking, copper riveted to oak frames. Floor timbers are of greater thickness than call for in the original design scantlings (2 vs 1.5). External ballast is through-bolted as opposed to tapped (original building directions). Keel bolt nuts and washers are countersunk flush with floor tops
