Arthur S. Henry


An American (California ??) designer who patented the concept of building a cavity for the cabin sole into the keel in order to achieve more headroom. This was employed in his designs for many of the REINELL (later AMI AMERICAN XX) series sailboats. Henry was president of American Mariner Industries (AMI).
