Looks like a terrific boat. Dodgers are necessary but they rarely (if ever) add to the aesthetics. Since this was a Hood/Empacher hull style hull form was there ever discussion about a centerboard? Guess that would not be much of a priority on the left coast.
Finished the circumnavigation in early February in Grenada. Have to work on a book project for the next several months so the boat will be waiting for next year.
