Ted Hood founded Hood Sailmakers, which during the 1960s turned into the world's largest sailmaker. Also in the 1960s he began designing yachts, and eventually became a boatbuilder, founding Little Harbor Yachts. In 1967 he designed the deep-bellied whalelike hull you see here for Paceship Yachts of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. The design may look unconventional, but close inspection reveals some advantages. Above the waterline, the hull is quite conventional, but the lower midships section descends into a deep V down where ballast is most effective. (Note the relatively high ballast weight compared to the Westwind's comps, and her high D/L ratio, both of which should give her extra stability.) The hull depth also permits a lower cabin sole, which together with a doghouse in the cabintop yields the most headroom compared to her comps. Best features: In general, owners seem quite satisfied with their choice of boat. Worst features: Despite her good headroom, plus cabin sides which are very close to the gunwales (leaving very little room to walk forward), the boat has a lower Space Index than any of her comps.
