I am looking at a Ingrid 38 what do you know

Jwff:The Ingrid is not one of the boats I''ve owned;That said,my father-in-law,who was an excellent shipwright and boat yard owner in
Portland,Or. built one in wood,using Port Orford cedar on steam-bent oak frames and
copper fastenings.We sailed it up the coast to Victoria B.C. and then left it in Port Townsend for about 5 years using it every time he or I could get away.It was built to spec''s and although under powered by modern
expectations it actually sailed quite well,in
any direction,except down wind,then the mizn.
was blanketed.In wood I would say they were about a 25% better boat than in Glass!
