Re: Full Keel

Classic

I think I found the answer. Stor means large in Swedish. Tumlaren means Dolphin. Apparently Knud Reimers (a Dane) designed the Tumlaren class in 1933 to marry the Koster boat, long and narrow, with the speed potential of a Scandinavian Skerry cruiser.

Adlard Coles gave the name Cohoe to all his boats - after the fastest of the salmon.

Back to researching Tumlare.
