In 1932 a committee composed of members of local yacht clubs around the east coast (USA) was formed, to develop a new one-design class. Based on 'Gimrack', an earlier Olin Stephens design. 21 were built. A number have been restored, and/or reproduced, and are seen, to this day, in the coastal waters of Maine (USA). A fiberglass version was approved for class racing in 2005.
