The yacht is undergoing a complete overhaul - 25.03.2010 by Matias Johansson
FIN-15 Kisen is undergoing a complete overhaul since 2008, whereby she will be restored from the keel up. The project can be followed in http://fin15kisen.blogspot.com/. Also some English content provided.
Owned by Ingmar Nylund until 1962 - 29.10.2008 by Matias Johansson
According to C.H. Ericsson's book on Gösta Kyntzell FIN-015 was sold to Helsingfors Segelsällskap (HSS) in 1962 and renamed Benita (Ericsson 1999, 146).
Original name was Kisen - 13.10.2008 by Matias Johansson
The original drawings by Gösta Kyntzell show the name Kisen and this was probably what the boat was called while owned by Ingmar Nylund. The boat went by the name Benita until late 2008. When the name was changed is unclear.
