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.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Now in Bermuda and heading to Long Island Sound in the first week in May. Then on to the Hudson and the Erie Canal.
