Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding, builder of Dr. Stanley Paris's Kiwi Spirit and of the experimental monohull prototype Speed Dream, hosted a party the Newport Shipyard on November 19. The gathering celebrated the successful launch and sea trial of both boats. Kiwi Spirit had just arrived in Newport after a successful sea trial run from Lyman-Morse in Thomaston to Newport. The gathering also celebrated the opening of Lyman-Morse's new brokerage and sales office at the Newport Shipyard. The new office is run by Annie Lannigan.
