I have previously featured* this Spray Class Yawl. This time I have close-up detailed photographs. She appears to be a fairly accurate replica of Joshua Slocum’s original 36’ 9” wooden gaff yawl, except she is a Ferro cement boat. Her deckhouse structure is similar to the original, but she has a little less freeboard. Her solid construction and heavy displacement should give her crew an easy motion at sea. I would be interested to learn if she can do as Slocum’s ‘Spray’ did, that is to sail for hundreds of miles with her helm lashed.
