Re-design: 67 Racer Cruiser into a Daysailer.

A year ago, this 1967 41' Ohlsen, a "fast" cruiser/racer in it's day, had the cabin house cut off between the two large aft ports in this drawing.



The result is GYRE, now a daysailor redesigned to sail and race with a large family or crew.



The redesign was inspired by this new cockpit, now around 11' long(the lens doesn't do justice to the length here). Rockport Marine did a fine job on this reconstruction, especially the new coaming which ties it together.



As the idea and much of the design work was sort of "seat of the pants", many are surprised how nicely GYRE turned out.

Hi Bob, I hope I have this right. I was talking to one of the designers at Rockport Marine, and he sounded like little actual design work was done.

The owner came with the idea and some very talented craftsmen at RM worked with him and this is the result.

Here's the blog on their website.

Faster, the galley went into the dumpster(in a manner of speaking) when they cut that area out and built the extended cockpit.

The owner was serious, he wanted a daysailer, not a cruising boat, for his large extended family. He and wanted clean open decks and a large cockpit to bring them along and maybe do a little fun racing.

He wanted space for coolers.

That boat needs a bigger wheel. That one looks silly.
