Helen is related to the Schooner Boat.
In the closing days of sail the fishing boats of New England ran from diminutive dories to schooners over a hundred feet long. In the middle were the sloop boats and schooner boats, ranging from about twenty-five to seventy feet.
This sloop boat is larger than the 32′ Schooner Boat; but still on the small side for its type.
Helen differs from the model by having a raised deck cabin amidships. This maximizes space below while still providing deep, secure bulwarks fore & aft.
Helen is shown in the third illustration with Buster. Too large to be carried on deck here. Buster is a potential mother-hen for a fleet of small boats. More on these as they’re fleshed out.
