We have had this boat for 5 years and enjoyed sailing on the St. Lawerence River, Lake Ontario and recently returned from a 10 month, 5000 miles voyage down to the Bahamas and back (She was perfect for the Bahamas with her shoal draft!). We have spent the last month polishing her up and she is ready to go again.

Think of the possibilities with this boat. It's trailer-able so you can go sail anywhere, not to mention you donít have to pay for dockage or to get your boat hauled .
She can be rigged by 2 people in under 30 minutes. Shoal draft opens up many different sailing locations and allows you to sneak up into the snug anchorages off the beaten path.
It's seaworthy and has safely taken us across the gulf stream and around the New Jersey Coast.
Not to mention this boat is extremely pretty Ė we got compliments wherever we went.
The boat is safe and easy to sail. Shes ready to go sailing again.
