I have one that I still sail here on the Maine coast. I have modified it some. I like it very much.

It is fast and capable. Its shallow draft gives it an advantage here in the strong currents some of our "protected" waters enjoy.

I have beefed it up in several ways for safety. i am a former boat builder so the doing of those "upgrades" was not expensive.

I have sailed it through "The Old Sow" off Eastport many times.

Mine is an older one.

How is your experience with yours coming?

It is one of several boats we enjoy here in Maine. Being retired allows me time to play.
