Notes

One of the earliest sail-power hybrids and, according to the sales literature, was designed to accept an outboard motor of up to 40hp. Or the boat could be propelled by by an optional Berkeley jet-pump attached to a Briggs & Stratten lawnmower engine. An inset on the original sales brochure shows the boat, under power, towing a water skier.
