the Friendly Seas
Muffin at a Glance
Elizabeth Ginns Britten September 2004
Engines: 2/50-hp Yamaha four-stroke outboards
Fuel capacity: 20 gal.
Top speed: 13 knots
Accommodations: one stateroom, located all the way aft
Notable interior features: full-standing shower, 30'x11'6"
saloon featuring the 307s original seats and bar, working galley,
and computer station
Performance: maneuverability difficult, especially in tight areas.
Since the helm station is where the original cockpit was, going in reverse
is a challenge. To ease docking and close-quarter maneuvering, Drimmer
has installed side-view mirrors.
Whats up with her name? Singer/songwriter/seaplane pilot
Jimmy Buffett wrote the plane-boat into his first novel Where is Joe
Merchant?, as the Cosmic Muffin, Desdemonas rocketship
to the stars. Buffett later wrote a song entitled Desdemonas
Building a Rocketship, in which he also references
Cosmic Muffin. EGB
