Extremely shallow draft: with the bilge boards up the boat can get into 20 inch water boards down you have 5 feet of draft for upwind performance.
Both masts rotate to let out sail to get underway,and simple roll in to reduce sail both masts have wishbone booms for loose footed sails (no low booms to knock you out) and both are self tacking
Simply steer to tack upwind - all control lines go back to the cockpit to seven newly installed line stoppers and two new self tailing winches New solar battery tender, DC/USB charger, and new motor mounts for the Yanmar Diesel.
Very well maintained boat with many updates.
