Jeez- Reminds me about something concerning breaking waves and surface area.

Does it double as a submarine?

On edit... noticed the name. 'ARK'...

And the radar at eye level

I don't see a boom or sails (or even a forestay), but on the other hand, he is on the water in a boat enjoying life so how can you fault that?

Now let's talk about that anchor...

According to the specs in the brokers ad:

Sails and Rigging

Three Harken Self Tailing winches.
Behing the mast Facnor endless line furler for mainsail.
Two Harken head sail behind the wire furlers for jib and genoa.
Three jibs. Two Genoas. Two mainsails.

and theres a pic of a teeny tiny main on it as well. I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it. Reminds me of a house boat only with pointy ends and a mast. This ones Ugly with a capitol UG.
