Owner's Comments

She is a comfortable, trailable, attractive, 2 berth boat with self draining cockpit and outboard well.  She has been used for local estuary sailing in the rivers Blackwater and Colne etc.. 

In 2001 the underwater surface of the hull was epoxied, the interior refurbished, and new spars and rig fitted to a design by Fabian Bush. She also had a new, substantial lifting rudder fitted and the centreplate bolt was replaced. 

She sails beautifully and the new rig has made her quick, responsive and well balanced. Fabian's work is of an excellent standard, and the new set up makes her an excellent estuary boat with a good performance and attractive appearance. She is designed to b managed by one person and can be launched, recovered and rigged single handed.

Broker's Comments

Here is a pocket cruiser with a bit of character. Ideal for single or short handed sailing on a budget.  With her new rig and epoxied bottom, expenditure should be minimal for the next few years.

With her lifting keel up she will almost sail on wet grass! - An ideal way to explore the nooks and crannies of our coast line.

I was reminded recently - the smaller the boat - the more likely you are to use her!
