L36 Legend

Restored



In 1957 Chappy Chapman & Rolly Kalajian used Lapworth's design to build the Heiress in Newport Beach. Her first owner Robert Meserve berthed her in New Port Beach. Her second owner Ted Todd took her up to the San Francisco Bay where he raced her until he sold her to the Commodore of the Alameda Yacht Club, Red Brabant. Following Brabant's passing, John Nachteem berthed her in Grand Marina, Alameda until I bought her and hauled her out.


My restoration sought to bring her back to her glory days with Brabant. Following a season of backbreaking work and over 12,000 dollars, the Heiress splashed back and is again sailing the Bay.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
