Captain Nat's ALERION II (HMCo. #446) was launched on this day in 1894. ALERION II was not just radical because it was a fin keeler, it was also one of the earliest HMCo. boats to sport cross cut sails. Captain Nat wrote of ALERION II: "This boat twenty-seven and one-half feet waterline, about thirty-five feet on deck, and seven feet four inches wide, jib and mainsail rig, had a very satisfactory, but small, cabin. She proved a very satisfactory craft and I had her several years before selling her to Jim Alker. Under his sailing, she won many races. She was the craft from which the famous Thirty Foot Newport Class sprang and I only sold her because I was troubled with rheumatism that made it hard to handle small craft. She was about the best of the fin-keel type..."📸 J.S.
