Great little boat! I've owned two of them over the years in between a Catalina 25. The boat is rigged beautifully for singlehanding and is easy to trailer and launch. Draft about 18" with the...

Simrad WP Belt

I would avoid the Hunter B7R rig like the plaque. Mainly because it prevents the main from going full out and I sail downwind without a spinnaker.

Smile Rib

I've had an Aquapro aluminum bottom for more than 10 years in salt water with no traces of corrosion even where the bottom paint has been scraped off by oysters and barnacles. Love the light weight.
