Sample text

Before committing, he decided that we should do a trial project to see if we could work well together. I was up for anything. The project I was given was to transform the company’s failing Islander 40 clipperbowed, center-cockpit ketch, originally a Charlie Davies design, into a viable product. This was a weird boat, straight out of the Charlie Davies/Hugh Angleman school of character boats. It looked like a little pseudo pirate ship. The Islander 40 was all displacement and full keel with a massive, squared-off stem that stayed square from the tip of the clipper “beak” to the rudder gudgeon.

We molded the keel fin into the hull so that the lead could be internal in an effort to save money during construction by eliminating keel bolts and the fairing required with external ballast. I had a scheduling conflict when the prototype 28 was to be launched in July 1975. I had committed to race with a friend in the Chicago-Mackinac Race. The boat we raced was the slowest-rated boat in the fleet, so my chances of finishing in time to get back to Newport Beach for the launching seemed remote.

When the first Valiant was launched in the fall of 1974, we sea-trialed it extensively.
