Design 625 - Kawamee

This design takes us back to 1947. Kawamee was built by Jakobson Shipyard of Oyster Bay, New York. She is constructed of steel.

Here are a couple of magazine articles form the period. Please double click for zoom.

Here are the plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 63'-6"
LWL 52'-0"
Beam 15'-6"
Draft 5'-6"
Displacement 43,435 lbs
Ballast 17,500 lbs
Sail Area 1,681 sq ft

Just to put things in perspective, I found his image of a new car on the back of one of the magazine articles.
