Curt asked in a comment about the original Spartina, a Devlin-designed Nancy's China that my Dad and I built in Texas in the late 1980s. The designs called for small cabin, which I left off. I also changed the rig from a sprit rig to a gaff-rigged main with a traditional boom.
There she is above on our last ever sail aboard her, coming in to Ocracoke from Pamlico Sound. I was building the Pathfinder at the time. I sold this boat a few weeks later, walking away with tears in my eyes.
