|The first KDY Junior|
Finally, could the design of the Junior have influenced Tord Sunden in his eventual design proposal for the Folkboat in 1942? I think it's a near certainty that Sunden knew of the success of the Junior and its excellent sailing qualities. The similarity of the profiles of the two hulls, and in particular Sunden's adoption of the raked transom, make it, for me, a case of the Junior being, in this case, the parent.
