"Pacific" - Schooner
A schooner with steel masts
Shortly after WWII Thomas E. Colvin started to plan a 39,50 meter long freight-schooner. In the 60s more plans for smaller versions (2,5-7,5 meter length) followed.
The “Pacific” was constructed in 1964 under the type-name “Saugeen Witch” and built by the owner on a meadow in southern Germany. Special features are the used steel masts.
Vessels of the “Saugeen Witch” family have a legendary reputation when it comes to the swell behavior and directional stability. Well-trimmed and with a fixed rudder, vessels can stay on course for hours or even days. All in all there were built around 60 ships, several sister-ships of the “Pacific” already sailed around the world.
The draftsman of the “Pacific” is living in Alva/Florida, USA. In the last 69 years he constructed over 300 ships, not just long distance sailors, cargo ships, motor- and passenger ships but also unusual vessels like the flattop “USS Forrestal”, which is nowadays a museums ship in Boston.
