    If you want to learn to sail... this is the boat. If you know how to sail and you are looking for the easiest setup and trailering... this is the boat. If you want a sailboat and trailer that will fit in your garage... this is the boat.

    A lot of manufacturers claim how stable their boats are but any small dinghy will capsize. However, I have had this boat for 3 seasons and I have yet to capsize even in 20+ knot winds. I did capsize it once-on purpose so that I could determine the best way to get out of the water and back aboard. Because of the carbon mast, the wide beam and chine, I had a very hard time even keeping the boat over in the water as it was trying to right itself the whole time. This fact and the cat rig makes this an excellent boat to learn to sail on. It will show you your mistakes but won't punish you so badly for them as some boats will. For the accomplished sailor, it is drama-free and relaxing to sail with the furling main sail and wide gunwales that make hiking easy and effective when needed.

    The boat comes with everything you will need to go sailing except your PFD.

    The boat is in very good condition. I would give it an excellent except for a scratch in the gel-coat on the stern which was there when I got it and two small areas of spider cracks hardly noticeable on a nearly 12 YO boat. The rudder and centerboard have been faired and the edges repainted. The mast step and all items on deck have been re-bedded as has the gudgeon bracket. New scupper and hull drains installed. Brand new sail, mast cover and custom boat cover makes it the complete package. Only reason I am selling is that I bought a big kayak and there is not room on my dock for two boats.
