Biography of Frederic A. Fenger

Frederick A. Fenger was a yacht designer, sailor, and author. His main contribution to yacht design are his use of the dhow-form hull, the wishbone rig, and the main trysail rig. Fenger was an inventive designer, and while some of his innovations never became popular, they did enjoy a following, and the wishbone rig has recently had a revival of interest in commercially produce yachts. Fenger was particularly interested in rigs which would be manageable when sailing short handed. The collection consists of personal papers, including copies of correspondence and photographs, with a large part of it related to Fenger's design for sailing rigs.

In 1911 Fenger sailed the canoe YAKABOO in the Caribbean, and this collection include the log of the YAKABOO as well as a draft of his book written about the cruise, Alone in the Caribbean.
