A 28' V-Bottom Sedan Day Cruiser By William & John Atkin
The Day Cruising Sedan Matson S. was designed for day cruising and as
such she’s admirably suited. For hundreds of watering places this craft
will prove ideal.
The cockpit is of self-draining type, the floor being well above the load
water line. The width of the cockpit in its middle part is 6 feet 5 inches
and the floor at this point is 3 feet 8 inches below the edge of the
coaming. Thus you are in the boat while aboard, not on it; there is a
world of difference between the two.
The cabin is fitted with a compact little galley, ice box, single-burner,
stove, sink, a single good-sized bunk and the steering wheel and
motor controls. There is 5 feet 10 inches headroom under the house
top beams which is ample for the average height man or woman. The
space beneath the forward deck supplies stowage place for anchor,
lines, and all the many things that are likely to collect in a boat.
The freeboard is ample for a boat of this length and consequently
assures a dry boat in rough water. The keel extends in a straight line
and the propeller and rudder are thus perfectly protected from damage
in case of grounding. Some speed is sacrificed by the long keel and full
deadwood and sacrificed to the advantage of seagoing ability. The hull
was designed for a speed of 18 to 19 miles an hour using a 52-85 h.p.
