Polaris, by Sam Rabl
Sam Rabl is one of my favorite designers. Especially his designs for home builders. If you've been around here for a while, you may remember that my first fixed keeled boat was a Picaroon designed by Sam.
A Doryman reader wrote to me a while back to remind me that Sam Rabl also designed a slightly bigger boat built in plywood called a Polaris. He also had some questions about details, so I asked another faithful reader, who's an excellent historian, to do some research.
We are talking about a seaworthy boat here and even though Sam claims you can build it in your backyard does not mean it's simple. This is a boat for a serious sailor and will take you anywhere you want to go.
But first you'll have to pick your sail rig. Here we have no less than four options, including a hermaphrodite brig.
