GRACE is a Hvalsoe 13 I just completed and launched. It’s designed as a traditionally built lapstrake sail/row boat that I converted to glued lap. She has a sprit rig and had a successful first sail yesterday. There is a building thread about her on the Forum.
After growing up racing Six-Meter sloops and moving up right after World War II to a 20-year ownership of a big keel racing sloop, Commodore Henry S. Morgan commissioned this lovely centerboard motorsailer to become his third yacht named DJINN . She remained under Morgan ownership for two decades, always admired for being well run and beautifully maintained. It’s evident from her generous rig and outside steering station that Morgan was a sailorman at heart. For her type, this boat is way more sail than power.
