Wooden Boat

Soon after Maria returned from the rolling waves of grain in Minnesota, we went with Ed to the Wooden Boat campus. Ed designed Dancing Seahorse to provide trawler cruising speed and living space with maximal fuel efficiency. He modified established plans for an efficient monohull to create his catamaran and added unique features of his own. He and Vinnie filmed sea trials of the boat speed and behavior at various RPMs. While testing the boat they made almost 11 knots. Ed showed his films and photographs to the enthusiastic editors of Wooden Boat and Professional Boat Builder.
