“Save a Classic” can take only partial credit for getting this boat into the right hands. Word of mouth among the cognoscenti got FALCON a new and enthusiastic owner—two of them, in fact. The first of these was the late Konrad Ulbrich who had another FALCON of the same Universal Rule class (designed by Frank Paine, which he renamed HAYDAY, see WB No. 207), and the second and present owner is Gerald Rainer who also owns the lovely Herreshoff schooner MARY ROSE. This FALCON is now complete, having been restored by Konrad Ulbrich’s son-in-law, John Anderson, who has gone to great ends to retain as much of the original material (fittings as well as wood) as possible.
