Why an Ingrid?
Ingrid's are based on Norwegian lifeboats as designed by Colin Archer for use in the North Sea and the Arctic. They have full draft keels with a protected propeller and bone-simple steering gear. They can carry a lot of sail for their length as either a ketch or a cutter. They have wide uncluttered decks. We fell in love with Ingrid's when we saw Jaga at the Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend, Washington. After that, the hunt was on for an Ingrid.
