The Grace Quan is a reconstruction of a San Francisco Bay Shrimp junk. Between 1860 and 1910, these were the workhorse of the Bay Area's Chinese-owned dried shrimp industry. The Shrimp Junks closely resembled vessels from the fishermen's home waters in Guangdong Province, China.
Most junks carried a single, five-batten lugsail. They also featured a daggerboard forward of the mast, and a rudder which could have its depth adjusted. When wind was calm, the fishermen could use oars, rowed from the bow, and a long sculling oar, called a "yuloh" worked from the stern.

Length: 42 ft., 3 in.
Beam: 10 ft., 4 in.
Draft, daggerboard, rudder down: 5 ft.
Draft, daggerboard, rudder up: 1 ft.
