|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.|
