On Building Terrapin 42

"Reuel Parker's Terrapin 42 is an exceptional design for any boatbuilder. I had dreamt of building my own wooden boat, and many are the plans that I had studied with care. I wanted a cruising boat for the Gulf Coast, Bahamas, and something capable of extended trips throughout the Caribbean. It had to be large enough for four adults, but manageable by two when one does not plan to sail round-the-clock. Moreover, since the intended cruising grounds showed that there are many appealing anchorages that can accommodate a draft of 32 in., but not 5 feet, a centerboard seemed appropriate"
