Muri-Maru, a 17' 5" birdwing Yangtze Pelican microcruiser
The following recently completed 3D renderings of a Yangtze Pelican birdwing ketch are from the desk of JF Bedard of Bedard Yacht Design. The boat design itself is the work of Captain William Short, a legendary tugboat captain of the San Francisco Bay area. The birdwing masts are my invention, U.S. patent # 8,739,720. The sail design is by Jeff Frank of Sailrite Interprises.
