    Doing away with a tiller explains the wheel, but it looks so uncomfortably tacked on. Engine access not too good either, I wonder if they considered a well………..

    I’m the proud owner of one of these. I sail it all over Tampa Bay in Florida. We have very shallow water so the small draught is perfect. Can’t tell you how much I love this boat. Surprised you don’t see more aft cabins… They have so many advantages (more space, better visibility, can easily go forward to tend sails, anchor etc. like a dinghy, can shelter from sun and rain while still sailing, I could go on and on.) someone mentioned the problem with accessing the motor- not too tough to do but yeah a little but of a pain (of course all engines are a pain). The website mentions that the aft cabin serves as a nice buffer between the skipper and the engine noise. The boat is so light that I just use the oars instead.

      Good day! Might you still be in the Tampa area? Have been contemplating this design for sometime now. Talked to Mr. Shell a week ago regarding 21′ Schooner. Would really like to take a peek at yours if possible and bring my sons. I live in Lakeland and my father lives in Gulfport so I’m pretty much right next door. Don’t want to impose, though. Sincerely, Paul.
