Originally built as an IOR one-tonner, ROLLING STONE has belonged to her current owners since 1983, and they had her interior professional re-done and finished out in 1985-86.
She was raced in the Hawaii Single-Handed Transpac Race in 1988 (13 days 5 hours), and since 1992 the owners have cruised her from San Francisco to Alaska, back to San Francisco and south to Panama, transiting the canal in '95/'96. Then they sailed to Maine and Nova Scotia in 1996, on to Newfoundland in 1997, back to New England in 1998 and 1999, and then across to Scotland in 2000.
Extensive maintenance work was done by the yard in Scotland to include re-painting the of deck and major repair and refinishing of the house. We feel ROLLING STONE can be well recommended for one desiring a responsive, proven cruiser/racer capable of extended cruising and passage making.
She is now due for repainting again and some re upholstering.
