Boston, Feb. 8.—Work on the
Lawson boat is progressing fav-
orably. Designer Crovinshield
seems to have bent his effort*
toward making this new cup de-
fender as easv to drive as the old
Columbia of 1803 and yet able to
develop more power through an
increase of sail. The develop-
ment of the two boats is nearly
identical, about 145 tons. The
Lawsyn boat will be longer on
deck especially in the forward
overhanging, which is 27 feet 6
inches, the longest ever given to a
cup defender. The beam is 3 1-2
feet narrower than the Columbia
The Lawson boat will doubtless
be lighter than the Columbia and
will have almost 2000 square feet
more sail, or about 14,500 feet.
From stip to masthead the Law-
men boat's mast will measure 118
feet, which is 8 feet more than
the Columbia. The building of
it excites great interest here.
