Dennis Robb and Raul Nelson built this 16′8″ Coquina cat ketch, which they named COQUINA, from plans by Doug Hylan, which were based on a design by Nat Herreshoff. The pair cold-molded the hull with okoume plywood planking and ipe sheerstrakes. They inlaid the name in maple on the mahogany transom. COQUINA's bronze fittings are from J. M. Reineck, and her sails are by Dabbler Sails. Emerson Brooks took these elegant photographs of this graceful design.
