Sunfish Clone (has better bow, better rough water handling). Sail is a little bigger than Sunfish
(84 sq.ft.). White, red and white sail. Sail has luff and boom sleeves instead of rings.

This is boat I learned to sail in. Turtled it 3 times before I learned how to let-go the sheet to de-power!

Boat is in rough shape (I'm working on it), but is very fun to sail. I'll probably never get rid of it. My boys are now learning to sail it (I just made a smaller sail out of poly-tarp, from plans on the WWW. The sail panel dimensions are from a downloadable shareware package called Sailcut4).
Boat is 14'1", has a small cubby in back of molded-in cockpit. Lateen rig is a dream to set-up. I've added 3 inspection ports. Helps in de-watering and interior inspections.

I'm interested in any information on this boat. I know the designers/builders were Jack Howie and ??? They now make a boat called the Designer' Choice.
