Designer's Comments
"She was a good little boat from day one," said George Cuthbertson of the Corvette, which he designed back in 1965.

Design hull no. 65-3 (the third project started in 1965), was named after the most famous Canadian World War II class of convoy escorts, the Corvette. Hull no. 1, Victoria, was delivered to Toronto's John Hilton in the spring of 1966. The Corvettes continued in production until 1971. Altogether 167 vessels were built. There were some large yearly production runs; 41 boats were built in 1968/69, and 52 in 1969/70.

Electra II (now Temeraire, lying in Belleville), hull no. 34, was trucked to Florida for the 1968 SORC series. Ian Morch skippered, with George Cuthbertson, boat-builder George Hinterhoeller, designer Bruce Kirby, and the owner, Gordon Stonehouse, as crew. The boat had been sailed only once when they started the Lipton Cup Race held off Miami, but they finished first in Class D and 24th in a fleet of more than 100 yachts.

That same year in the 184-mile Miami-Nassau race Electra II finished second overall in the fleet, and first in Class D. Her third and final race of that series was the Governor's Cup, a wind-ward-leeward course, sailed off Nassau in 25-knot winds, Electra II placed fifth in her class, boat for boat, beating vessels five feet longer. Her CCA rating was 25.5, and was, in Ian Morch's opinion, "just a little on the heavy side for a Corvette". Still, her SORC performance was an astonishing success for a boat just 32-feet long.

Today the Corvette can only be described as traditional, with her relatively narrow beam, long overhangs and graceful sheer. The deckhouse is of moderate size, well in keeping with this style of vessel. The mainsail and fore triangle are of equal area, a moderate 444 sq. ft. on a vessel displacing 8,545 lbs.

Many buyers were attracted to this design because of the shoal draft (3 ft. 3 in. with the board up) and long keel. The centreboard trunk is in the keel and does not intrude into the accommodations above the floorboards.

The decks are wide, with outboard shrouds, and the foredeck is large. The cockpit is eight feet long, with straight benches, and the tiller sprouts from the cockpit sole.

The boat is well ballasted, carrying 4,000 lbs. of bolted-on lead just forward of the centreboard. The external ballast is well placed to absorb the hard knock of grounding in the shoal waters she was designed to sail.
