This is the best pocket cruiser you will be able to find. It sails
shallower with its fully retractable swing keel (9" draft) than many
others to get right up on the beach or into shallow coves. Is
incredibly stable with the keel down (3'9" draft), and can have it
anywhere in between for various weather conditions. The shallow draft
allows for easy launching even at the shallowest of boat ramps. A
displacement of 900 lbs makes it easily trailerable behind nearly any
vehicle. I used a sedan and it towed great.
A full day of setup, sail and take down can be handled easily by one
person. The mast has a slide in step plate for and easy time stepping
the mast solo.
There is a very large cockpit for the size of the boat (7'4"). Fit 4
adults for a day sail comfortably. I am 6'4" and fit comfortably in
the cabin bunks for weekend trips. The 2 cabin portholes open and
have no-see-um screen for a great cross breeze. You will not find
opening portholes on any other boats of this class!
