Nice to be able to do your own haul out. She doesn't have much keel

Yeah, you don't need much keel when you have leeboards. She drafts about 2.5', I guess I'll see exactly in the spring.
It would be hard to say who designed her as she is based on a traditional type that has been around for over 100 years. Originally wood fishing
vessels that evolved into steel
She is about 27', 9' and a bit wide double ender. As I mentioned, steel
with a bit of a flat bottom (1.25" thick plate!). She is gaff rigged and about 5 tonnes.
She was built in 1981, and brought to Canada
in 1984 by the people from which I bought her.
