Despite 30 years in the making, Petrel was largely a 32’ hull and deck with a forward and aft bulkhead and miscellaneous pieces and parts when she arrived at Lyman-Morse. She arrived by truck from the owner’s home in West Bath and settled in for a winter-long work list to get her completed and ready to sail the following spring. The owner, Jay Paris, is an experienced yachtsmen who designed the boat himself. Jay's basic brief to himself was for a small ocean-capable shoal-draft cruising boat with narrow beam and a long waterline. Her hull, built by Walter Greene back in 1983, is wood-epoxy over an Airex core. He served as project manager for the project, ensuring that everything was to his exacting standards.
