GRAY WOLF is a state-of-the-art wooden boat with strong influences from classic American work boats and yachts. Designed by Rodger Martin and built by Lyman-Morse she is intended for a wide range of sailing duties from daysailing to single-handed racing. Utilizing the latest in boatbuilding technology, she is stripped planked cedar covered with a layer of 85/l 5 fiberglass cloth and epoxy resin. A combination of laminated frames and carbon fiber combine to make her a very strong, light weight boat. For exciting performance and shorthanded sailing an unstayed carbon fiber rig by Composite Engineering was selected. With all lines led to the cockpit, this powerful rig will be easy to handle as an offshore racer or for a daysail. Water ballast is used for both comfort daysailing and to allow more power from the rig. The 7 ft. bowsprit flies asym-metrical spinnakers with a drifter set on a removable furling drum. The normal headstay sets 150% and 120% genoas and the removable inner stay sets a hanked staysail to cover the upper end of the wind range.
