I've loved Oughtred boats since I first saw a picture of the Caledonia Yawl. Every design has touched me. If I wasn't old and semi-crippled (and if there was sailing water near me), I'd be building something. Reading about his life deepened my sense of connection. I especially like the new Sharpie design and that was enhanced by the article on the boat in the latest issue of The Wooden Boat Magazine. The Wooden Boat Store's service was outstanding as well.
