Looks like a fun little boat. 9 inch draft will take you anywhere.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

It most likely has a centerboard like the skipjacks.

Cool - it even has a "stabbin' cabin"

Life is too short to sail ugly boats.

Not too bad, but most multihulls can do that pretty much, and will sail a hell of a lot faster and have more cabin space besides. My boat's only 15" draft board up.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
