This is where we found Kairos, then called Circuitous, in the side yard of a Portland, Maine home. She had been lived on for many Maine winters, and was in need of some loving. However she met all the specs we had in mind.

She is a shoal draft centerboarder, 30' long. She has a gaff main and a marconi mizzen (unlike the plan above) and has a transom hung rubber and tiller.

Due to her nice wide beam she has comfortable accommodations.

Kairos: (καιρός) is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment (the supreme moment). The ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. While the former refers to chronological or sequential time, the latter signifies a time in between, a moment of undetermined period of time in which something special happens. What the special something is depends on who is using the word. While chronos is quantitative, kairos has a qualitative nature.
