    I've never sailed on it, but a friend designed it and another friend built it and I think it's quite a machine. Very well proven on the race course. I love the aesthetics, but some people don't. It has always been Atlantic based, but I hear that it's headed to my neighborhood.

    It is certainly unusual looking, i don't exactly love the looks but don't hate it either. I have not heard much about it since the capsize a few years ago.

    IMHO very cool boat. I take my hat off to people brave enough to design off the beaten path like this. If I remember correctly her rudders were unusual in that the had the pintles on the side?

    I admire it’s uniqueness and the courage of the owner to build it.
