A 16' Sailing Scow
Designed especially for those who want a practical, unpretentious sailboat which is easily and quickly built at low cost, Solution is simply a scow with hull refinements that enable it to carry a 21½-ft. stepped mast and about 140 sq. ft. of sail. The plywood bottom curves in a long, unbroken sweep from the stem block to the transom, while the sides curve out to the beam width back of midships and then fair in to the transom in a smooth, fiat curve. Because of these construction refinements, the hull rides easily and planes smoothly when you pick up a good breeze on the long reach of the tack. The unbroken curve at the gunwale adds to its trim, seaworthy appearance.
