Historical:

The exclusive rights to build this design, which after 86 years in Alden archives, will finally take shape as the schooner “Wolfhound” for it’s current owner.

Detailed construction drawings were never produced for this design. so some of the details in the implementation have to be inferred from other Alden designs from the same time period, such as the 1926 126’ 2-masted auxiliary schooner yacht “Starling”
