I''ve finally figured out the appeal of this boat, it doesn''t need sails! It has so much freeboard; the whole boat is a sail! It truly looks like a Bayliner with a mast. Such a tiny little wheel, the skipper would need a crew member to sit near the rail to tell the helmsman when the head sail is in trim, the person at the wheel could never see the tell tales. This boat may have a lot of desirable features in the cabin but then again, so do many trawlers. She''s not easy on the eyes, a real marina queen.
