Compassion is looking for a new master. She's 'jones-ing' to get back in the water and under sail as we have aged-out in our abilities to liveaboard.

The Ingrid 38 is a heavy displacement blue water ketch derived from Colin Archer's famous double ender designs, inspired by Viking boats renowned for their heavy weather characteristics. "The kind of boat that behaves herself in rough water and can be depended upon to sail herself"... the superb one-finger-on-tiller tracking and a comfortable ride.

With her old world style she's a good looking boat with a sheer line. Her seaworthiness is there to see in her full keel, heavy displacement and overbuilt construction. Her hull is heavily hand laid in fiberglass, there's robust outboard chainplates and an outboard rudder protected by extra fiberglass and a large bronze shoe casting should she scrub the bottom.

Compassion is a traditional sailboat with a tiller and hank-on headsails, cutter and for'sail with 900 sf of sail.
Atkin's main rework on the Ingrid 38 from Archer's original design was a finer entry on the bow which 'cushions' her landing off the waves. Below the waterline she has a long full keel with deep v-sections forward keeping her stable in the rough. The ballast is encapsulated and is distributed from bow to stern, this helps her to avoid the pitching motion familiar to fin-keel sailors. Rounding this off, there's plenty of flotation fore and aft which helps keep her dry.(Blue Water Boats)

The tradeoff heavy displacement and ultimate stability is usually in speed, the Ingrid 38 is not considered fast. Surprisingly she's known to sail pretty well in light airs, owners reporting she'll do half the wind speed up to 8 knots of wind. However, she's a boat that comes into her own in heavier seas. By the numbers, her hull speed works out at 7.2 knots but she'll more often manage a consistent 6 knots while cruising. The ketch rig gives plenty of options on all points of sail and she's an easy boat to single-hand.(https://bluewaterboats.org/ingrid-38)
