Notes

5.5 K-7 & N-10 - 21.12.2017 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Following a statement on drawings available at the Norwegian Maritime Museum, N-10 & K-7 could be sisterboats. At least the drawing of the boom is mentioning the two together.

5.5 K-7 - unique in construction - 25.04.2017 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Charles Perry reports:
Unique was quite an unusual boat. I believe that she was the first to have a reverse transom and note the large jib. She went fast to windward but not so good downwind!

Charles Perry reports: "...Yes, dad ordered the boat..."

UK yacht in 1952 Olympics - 17.12.2013 by Matias Johansson
Unique, designed and built in Norway, was the UK yacht in the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. She was crewed by Perry, S., Dillon, D. and Cochran-Patrick, N.

Till Rors (1952/16, p. 12), a Swedish yachting magazine, writes that Unique was "a jolly yacht with a very original appearance". Too bad we don't have a photo remaining to see how a jolly yacht looks like!
5.5 K-7 "Unique" - Original or Alias - 22.01.2009 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Has she been a fomer Norwegian boat, imported to the UK or did R.S.G. Perry order her from Westermoens?
