Notes

An adaptation of a William Atkin design, (specifically similar to INGRID, GOUCHO.) The Mark II version featured a different rig (designed by Raymond Richards) Number built by varying accounts: between 70 and 80 including those sold as bare hulls or kits. Boats to this same design were built by others using various materials including wood and ferro-cement.
