I can't, cause I am not there. But what I do remember is that she was modified by the last owner with a staysail and an additional set of tracks aft, next to the cockpit. She is a little bulbous around the middle "fat" as some would say, but not as much as the IOR boats. Modified keel with a skeg rudder, I believe. Not sure, but the genny we had up looked like a 130%. The traveler is full width on the cockpit bridge. The wheel has been moved forward and sits right behind the traveler, which I like a lot because the sheet is right there and I can keep it in my hand. The winches are behind you, which I don't like as much. In the original configuration, they would be right next to you, like a Dehler. No backstay adjuster.
