2003 Norwalk Island Sharpie "Lena"
Ketch Stayed Rig
Designed by: Bruce Kirby
Construction = BS 1088 Marine Plywood over Mahagony and Douglas Fir, sheathed in MAS epoxy with 12oz biaxle cloth with 6oz mat backing and Awlgrip finish. The 56 hp Yanmar pushes her to 8 + knots with the centerboard up - She sails even faster!!! Charleston, SC to Miami FL in 64 hours!
Built with pride by Sea Island Boat Builders LLC in Charleston South Carolina by Mark Bayne.
The Norwalk Islands Sharpies range of 5.5m (18'), 7m (23'), 8m (26'), 9m (29'), 9.5m (31')and 13m (43') yachts were created by Bruce Kirby - arguably the most successful sailboat designer of this era - designer of Laser, Sonar, America's Cup challengers and many more. Bruce has designed a much bigger Laser for grown ups, still following the philosophy of simple to rig and sail, but easily homebuilt, with cabin accommodation and real cruiser/racing ability
The 18', 23', 26' and 29' versions of the Norwalk Island Sharpies are trailerable, and the entire range possesses shallow-draft beachability, high manoeuverability and self-righting characteristics.
Bruce conceived the Norwalk Islands Sharpies out of the need for a shallow, capable boat to access his own slowly silting waterway in Rowayton, on the edge of Long Island Sound. The Sharpie type was a natural choice. The Rowayton Norwalk Islands area of Connecticut was a famed oyster ground. The light, shallow, crossplanked, unstayed cat ketch sharpies - ubiquitous in this area - could carry great loads of oysters across breaking bars to get to market early and safely. A crew of two was the norm, and the low sides facilitated the tonging of oysters from the shallow seabed. .......
The Norwalk Islands Sharpies are what happens when a racing and performance aesthetic meets workboat commonsense, practicality and heritage.
Lena is loaded with gear including complete 2012 Simrad Electronics, NSPL400 AIS, Plantronics Panel, a Corrosion control system, AGM batteries, Epirb, 6 man liferaft cannister w stainless cabin rack, Harken self tailing winches, Selden masts, Two 50 gallon fuel tanks port and starboard provide long range cruising capabilities combined with a 40 gallon baffled water tank midships and a 60 gallon baffled tank forward for Bahama trips or long showers!
