The gaff cutter was rated as the best cruising rig for small sailboat by Paul Garthside, John Welsford and Howard Rice in a Small Craft advisor article. They said that if you put a Gaff rig on a modern hull the performance will be supurb. This boat proves that statement.
This boat sails extremely well and won the manufactures cup at the Lake Havasu pocket cruiser convention. I have tested the boat in 35 mph winds on Lake Pleasant with great results - 4.3 knots beating into 3 ft waves in 35 mp winds recorded by the weather bouy.
The boat does not have a compression post which makes for a very comfortable sleeping cabin.
