kavakava is on a distinguished road
Initially Seafarers were kit boats of dubious construction. However, a Brit named Brian Ackworth started building them in a factory in Huntington, NY, and quality and consistency improved. Most of the one's I've seen were designed by McCurdy and Rhodes, sailed very well, and had a modified fin keel and a skeg rudder. Like most boats of that era, blisters were an issue. We sailed the hell out of a 22 for a number of years, and really loved it.
