Welcome....for sure a unique boat. Not a Potter, full keel and raised cabin would omit that. Very interesting. Just by pics looks pretty stout though. Keep us posted.

Welcome aboard!
Definitely nothing I've ever seen and not a Potter. I've seen plenty of those.
kind regards,

Re: Hello Everybody - I've Just Bought a 15' Sailboat

Hi there, I am new to this site and must say, I am having trouble getting around it. I am trying to find someone who has motored a sailboat from the Pickwick Dam area to the gulf area. We are moving to Beau Chene in Mandeville, La. and need some advice. Can anyone please help us or quide us were we need to go. It will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Betty P.S. I have a 34 foot Catalina
