Description

We have had many hours of great sailing in this lovely boat. It handles well. The centerboard hums when planing in a stiff wind. 2 sails, both original in excellent condition. Extensive restoration completed at Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine in 2014: hardware removed, all varnish stripped, multiple coats applied before hardware reinstalled; repaired interior fiberglass; new custom cover; all new lines. Trailer has 3 wheel for easy handling, new tires.
