Other comments:I bought the boat in about 1971 in Marblehead, MA, completely rebuilt her, and sold Kari to a Dr. In Hull, Ma around 1979. Haven't seen or herd if her since. I'd like to know any info. you know. I'm away from home right now but I can give you more information if when back home in a few days.
Imanual Parise was a Nevis carpenter until he retired to New Bedford, MA -- he built several boats in New Bedford, mostly bass boats. Kari was extremey well built in the Nevins way and had several unique appointments like the deck level cockpit with a Monel got well, teak cove planks, and an oval cut out main bulkhead, no cealings and an open layout, and only port lights in the cabin sides.
