Reinforced 1998 with Cutts & Case’s patented method which laces the planking below the waterline with thin Kevlar cord, resulting in an exceptionally safe and strong hull. See WoodenBoat #78.

Original Volvo-Penta MD7A diesel is well cared for, runs beautifully.

​Sails made by the legendary Stuart Hopkins at Dabbler Sails, who crafted them from Dacron to look like vintage cotton: half-width panels (18″) sewn with brown thread to catch the eye (and the camera), both jibs mitered to complete the vintage appearance. Sails are well maintained: main, mizzen, genoa, staysail. Includes a masthead drifter. Previous suit of sails are usable and are included.
