Cardinal is typical of the production line pond boat manufactured by Keystone in the 1940s. The elegant lines of the Jacrim boats were simplified with a flat bottom and solid hull. The keel may have lost its lead to the war effort. The restored sails are based on original shapes and include the Keystone stencil. The original hull paint has some flair with gold cove striping. Made to sail.
