Rigging. a sloop-of-war was quite different from a civilian or mercantile sloop, which was a general term for a single-masted vessel rigged in a way that would today be called a gaff cutter (but usually without the square topsails then carried by cutter-rigged vessels), though some sloops of that type did serve in the 18th century british royal navy, particularly on the great lakes of north. In the 1970s, phil bolger began a long and successful collaboration with harold 'dynamite' payson with bolger designing the boats and payson building them as well as selling plans and writing books about how to do it. 'dynamite' called the first series of easy-to-build plywood boats "instant boats".. Boatbuilders, manufacturers & repair yards a to m: abbott boats inc.
