She is a great boat, solid deck
no plywood core
. We used to go around the yard in the winter and tap on hulls and she was thud thud not tink tink. With a six foot keel
and a 32 foot mast
( I think that's right) she's not a tender
boat that heels way over on the slightest breeze. She starts coming to life at about seven knots. She has kept me safe in 40 knots in the Albemarle Sound and got us safely into Norfolk during a early winter storm. That was one heck of a ride.
I've redone the interior
to make her a live aboard. The extra insulation
around the refrigerators makes it so you have to keep it on the lowest setting or they become freezers. There are two units so one can be a freezer
and the other a fridge. I've built in some extra storage
and she is now really a couples boat. Though she can sleep three and a child if need be.
She has spent all but the last few years in fresh water
. When I first got her, prior to the plan to sail to the islands, a few of us used to chase each other around the lake and I was able to out point everyone. The club races started too late so the wind
was always to light to think about joining the racers. On weekend afternoons when the wind
would be up and the others are starting to have a little too much wind she just lays over and takes off.
She is in Daytona Beach btw. What else would you like to know?
