Fiberglass trailerable dinghy built at Long Island, NY (USA) for a very short time. (probably less than 100 were built.)
A unique feature, mentioned in the sales literature is the 'inboard rudder and modified skeg. Since we have never seen a COTTONTAIL, it's hard to see how this was implemented. (this photo which is from 'Sailboats of North America' by F. Blanchard, (1962) is the only PHOTO we have ever seen of a COTTONTAIL.)
