The final flight of Ingomar’s final section was successfully completed on March 29th, 2012. 81 years after Ingomar was lost on the shoals of the Frying Pan of the Cape Fear coast of North Carolina, she’s back and what a sight!! Now her hull is together we got a first look at the clean and graceful shape Nathanael Herreshoff designed back in 1903. The van der Graaf brothers did a great job recreating her, dedicated workmanship and clearly showing pride and passion for the project that was trusted to them.
In the coming months the hull will be welded up and finished. The rudder will be fitted, chainplates will slide in place, portholes will be cut, the list seems endless but the expectation is that the first coat of primer will go on in August.
