Launched in San Diego in 1948, Orion #68 underwent a large restoration by Baird Boat Works of Port Townsend, WA in 2006. Orion is as competitive today as she was 60 years ago. Mahogany planks—some new, over steamed oak frames—all sistered. Updated rigging with Schaefer and Harken blocks. Lots of bronze hardware and varnish. Very minimal systems, but she makes up for it with volumes of class. Needs paint, varnish, and a new halyard to be out racing again.
