Yawl, 1944

One of my  colleagues in the Woodson alerted me to this today. She found a full set of drawings for a 25 foot yawl, a two masted sail boat, for the Rice Institute. I can’t even begin to suggest an explanation for this.

Sorry about the reflection of the overhead lights. As you can see this was the second time in the last few weeks that I’ve had to use the glass sheets to hold something down flat.

Bonus: This disinfecting business has gone too far.

  1. Maybe someone drew the plans while stuck inside due to a flood? 😀 🚣‍♀️

  2. A project of an engineering class? Or perhaps someone in the Architecture School decided to try Marine Architecture instead. Can anyone suggest the identity of the drafter from the initials in the title block?

    Yawl should look for more blueprints.

    1944 – perhaps a project for someone in the V-12 program.
