Nineteen boats were built, and sixteen boats are still local Only one is known to have been destroyed. Although not all boats are currently afloat and racing, the class is active and several boats have undergone major refits. One or two are currently being restored.

WODs have 12 planks each side, and an oval or tumblehome shape to the transom. Very few boats have both these features.
