5.5 KC 5 "Halvan" - lost - 05.08.2017 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
Allan Leibel reports: "..."Halvan" was never sold to the USA. The boat went through a series of Toronto owners after my uncle sold her, and the boat was ultimately demolished as the planking and ribs decayed.
5.5 D-1 "Halvan" - sold to USA - 03.01.2009 by Kaspar Stubenrauch

I read that the boat was built for Kaj Wolhart. And the name of the boatyard should be Børresen, situated in Veile, Denmark
