Description

In the article on the original Acorn, in Wooden Boat No. 56, Maynard Bray said: “The Acorn Skiff is primarily a rowboat. She is light in weight, narrow at the waterline, and her freeboard is kept low to keep down her windage. She rows like a dream. With her rising forefoot and lean hindquarters, she should settle back and tow well behind another oat if she were used as a tender. She’ll also sail when fitted with one of the two rigs, the ruder and the dagger board shown on the drawings. But make no mistake – she is neither particularly stable nor particularly burdensome. If you’re looking for a boat that you and your passengers can clomp around in, stay away from this one. She’s a sweet-line, slippery little jewel – and one in which you’ll not normally want to take more than two passengers”
