I built this boat on student loans during my last 2 years at RISD. She was 21’ overall and the design was more or less based on a Soling or Yngling but with a finer entry and higher ballast/displacement ratio. Both changes were made to address behavior in big seas. She was launched during the summer of 1981 in Little Compton, RI. In the late fall of that year I sailed her to Martha’s Vineyard where I lived as a cabinet maker and sailed her out of Lake Tashmoo.
