Sea Hawk, a 78-foot Little Harbor, had waited for our party of four in Staniel Cay, coddling her new owner and his guests for "just one more day. I understood his reluctance to leave as soon as I stepped into the saloon. Sea Hawk, originally owned by Bill Koch of America3 fame, wears her patina with the pride of her aristocratic lineage, as though she were a gentleman's favorite cashmere jacket. She's a keel/centerboard ketch drawn by Ted Hood's design group in the tradition of heavy displacement, slack-bilge cruising yachts meant to play on the world's oceans, blow high, blow low. Her ketch rig divides the sail area into manageable chunks and keeps it relatively low, which reduces the angle of heel when she's under a press of sail. Her resistance to heeling and her extraordinarily gentle motion make Sea Hawk ideal for charter guests who aren't accustomed to sailing.
