Built by Southern Sails,Inc. of Clearwater Florida (I believe they are no more). Micro-cruiser,sloop, centerboard, draft 12"min, sleeps 4, beamy, stable, rigs and launches easily, handles 15-20 knot breezes and 3-4' seas nicely. Cabin roomy for such a small boat. Centerboard design poor (I had to rebuild it recently, and the line to raise and lower it is hard to use). Overall fairly solid and well built with non-skid decks, some decent harken hardware, access covers to rear bilge areas and storage lockers below. I wish the chain plates and standing rigging were a bit heftier. I recommend it for what it is. I'd love to get more information about this boat if you have some (I bought it used in 1996).
